Teachers are in demand and valued in the State of Iowa. Morningside is fortunate to offer one of the only programs in the state that allows you to use your existing bachelor’s degree in an endorsable area (ie. Biology, English, family and consumer science) to become a teacher in an Iowa middle or high school in less than two years. This is a great option for anyone looking for a career change and wishing to help shape the future by becoming an educator.
