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:

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.  Messiah currently offers a graduate program in School Counseling that includes certification as a school counselor in elementary and/or secondary schools.
