The M.Ed. program can be viewed as part of the educators’ responsibilities within their schools. Course assignments and program projects will be designed for immediate application. The curriculum is designed for its relevancy to current practice and will be directly applicable to present and future educational roles, whether as administrators, curriculum specialists, or faculty.
Although two years teaching or administrative experience, teacher certification, or education degree is preferred, a limited number of students without one of these experiences, who otherwise meet requirements, with exceptional leadership qualities may be considered. Prerequisite course work or internships could be required.
Almost all students are practicing educators with full schedules. Through a variety of instructional formats, with both year-round online and intensive summer campus courses, the program can be completed in 2-4 years depending on the needs of the student.
There is no thesis requirement. However, as a means of pursuing areas of personal and professional interests, classroom projects allow for practical application within students’ current educational settings.
Our program focuses on equipping Christian educators to think, teach, and lead biblically in educational settings throughout the world. The program centers on a biblical philosophy of education, administration, and curriculum design. God's Word is used as an evaluative measure for both content and instruction within diverse educational settings.
A minor in education is offered for those students who wish to supplement their other majors or minors with a practical background in educational principles and best practice.
Our program focuses on equipping Christian educators to think, teach, and lead biblically in educational settings throughout the world. This approach provides a biblical foundation for a career in teaching. Graduates will think Christianly about the profession of teaching as well as the nature and needs of children.
Students earn two degrees in five years. They are equipped to serve in Christian, International, private, and public schools. They enter the profession without the need to immediately plan for graduate studies. The program structure provides a seamless transition from undergraduate to graduate studies.
