About Us

Modeled after the Peace Corps, the Mississippi Teacher Corps (MTC) is a two-year program that trains non-education majors to teach in high-poverty public schools in Mississippi. In addition to teacher job placement, participants earn a Master of Arts Degree in Curriculum & Instruction from the University of Mississippi.

Each year, we accept between 25-35 candidates.  Due to the small size of the program, all participants move as a cohort through each stage of the training and coursework.

During the school year, all MTC participants teach in critical-needs school districts in Mississippi and attend graduate classes at the University of Mississippi.
