The mission of the graduate program at Morningside College is the improvement of teaching in elementary and secondary classrooms. To carry out this mission, Morningside College offers a variety of teaching endorsements that are available at the graduate level. The endorsements are designed to increase the knowledge, skills, and dispositions of in-service teachers so teachers can meet the diverse learning needs of students. Hours counted toward an endorsement may, in most cases, be a combination of graduate and undergraduate credit hours and are not subject to time limitations. All teaching endorsements are approved by the Iowa Department of Education.
As of this upcoming summer, Morningside will have moved all classes into a “totally online” delivery. They hope this will help participants who have had to drive quite a distance to a location to take hybrid classes. Classes in Morningside’s Strat I and Strat II special education endorsements will be online, along with those listed in the Morningside Teaching Endorsements & Master of Arts brochure.
