The School of Education equips students to be educators by providing a strong foundation in the liberal arts, educational theory and practice, specific academic disciplines, and by affirming a Christian worldview. This worldview encourages the pursuit of truth, the calling of teaching, and the worth of all persons. Out of love for Christ, we seek to foster vitality and integrity in all facets of life: spiritual, intellectual, social, emotional, and moral.
Our aim is to build effective educators with a Christian perspective.

The employment outlook for biology education students is excellent. Graduates of
the biology education degree program are prepared to teach biology in high schools
and also have the necessary basic preparation to enter a career in industry or
pursue an advanced degree in science. One semester of directed biology teaching
at the secondary level is required.
Early Childhood Education
Early childhood education consists of activities and/or experiences that are intended to effect developmental changes in children prior to their entry into elementary school. Early childhood education (ECE) programs include any type of educational program that serves children in the preschool years and is designed to improve later school. Each candidate will complete the required student teaching for one semester and earn a teaching license that reflects their specialty in the early years learning of children.
