Making the Transition from Student to Teacher
The BS degree in early childhood, middle level, and any of the secondary and K-12 areas qualify our graduates for entry level positions in public and private nursery, elementary, middle, and secondary schools. Our graduates have been very successful in obtaining teaching positions or ministry/missions positions all over the world. Some specific places our graduates have acquired positions are:
Our students learn how to prepare and interview for teaching positions. We notify soon-to-be-graduates about upcoming job fairs and teacher recruitment events. We teach the skills they will need to apply for a teaching position.
Many of our students go on to pursue graduate degrees in disciplines such as school psychology, counseling, school administration, special education, educational psychology, and others.
