Welcome to MSU-Meridian Division of Education, where our passion is changing tomorrow through education today! The Division has a distinguished record of service to our community, our state, and our nation with faculty who have been recognized nationally and internationally. With undergraduate and graduate degree offerings on campus and synchronous online, we are well equipped to meet a vast array of academic needs for both entry level and seasoned professionals. The Division of Education houses programs in traditional P-12 educational programs, such as elementary education and alternate route secondary education (with endorsements in elementary education, special education, computer science, and remedial reading), school counseling, teacher leadership, and school administration.  Additionally, we offer programs in community college education and clinical mental health counseling to help meet the needs of the community!

I encourage you to visit our administrative offices on the College Park Campus, which is located at 1000 Highway 19 North in Meridian or give us a call at 601-484-0170 and learn how the Meridian Division of Education can “ring true” for you!

Warm regards,

Jeffrey Leffler, Ph.D.
Interim Head, Division of Education
