Biblically Centered Curriculum
The School of Education offers a truly integrated, biblically centered curriculum that focuses on developing you as a whole student — equipping you with the wisdom and expertise to make an impact in classrooms and the world around you. Our Christian faculty and student body make our community rich and add a special, meaningful depth to the learning experience.
Engaging and Innovative Coursework
As a student, your learning won’t be confined to the classroom. You’ll have the chance, through fieldwork requirements and outside learning opportunities, to put the skills you learn into practice. We also recognize the importance of staying up to date on the latest teaching techniques and technologies, which is why many of our courses help you develop these skills — making you the expert.
Lifelong Career Preparedness
Whether you’re studying to earn a bachelor’s in liberal studies, working on your Master of Arts in Teaching or trying to clear your preliminary teaching credential, we’re confident the education you receive here will prepare you for success. Our graduates go on to work in K–12 classrooms, administration offices, homeschool settings and beyond, using their School of Education experience in the workplace.
