Teacher Education


The Teacher Education Emphasis, B.A. in Liberal Studies is designed primarily for the student who desires to become elementary school teachers. This degree path provides the background knowledge necessary to teach the subjects in an elementary classroom (school setting) and provides an introduction to the career of teaching. Teachers have a significant influence on the lives of children, their families, and their communities, and thus have tremendous ministry opportunities. Christian teachers are vital to expanding the kingdom of God locally (in public and private school settings) and abroad.

Our mission is to equip and empower effective educators - developing Christ-like, professional practitioners who are called to ensure life-changing learning for all students. This degree also meets requirements for students pursuing broader teaching careers, teaching credentials, or graduate teaching degrees allowing graduates to reach students, their families, and communities for Christ wherever they are called to serve.

  • • Innovative liberal arts curriculum utilizing leading-edge technology and methodology
  • • Seamless transition to Teacher Credential program or M.Ed.
  • • Strong partnerships with local districts
  • • 3+1 BA+Credential plan: the possibility of completing your degree and credentialing directly in 4 years.
