If you want to be a Christian teacher who is committed, competent, compassionate and is a collaborative leader, our program is for you!

Our program offers field experiences at all levels of the program, starting with a freshman introductory experience that enables students to decide early whether or not education is for them. In addition, our faculty are experienced teachers and are highly involved with students.

Students can also add special education as an added endorsement at either the elementary or secondary level and still graduate in four years.
