Advance Your Career With a Graduate Degree From Webster

Alumni from our Global Campuses

Teaching middle school students involves more than just the lesson plans. These students are influenced and inspired by those around them, which means that teachers are an integral part of their lives.

In the Master of Arts in Teaching with an Emphasis in Middle School Education program at Webster University, graduate students are learning how to become the teachers adolescent students need. Webster students study design-based research principles and developmental needs so they can develop teaching techniques that engage students and help them to be successful in and out of the classroom. They are also prepared to address diverse learners and creatively use technology to interact with students.
