Elementary Education and Early Childhood Education Supplemental with ELL Supplemental Endorsement

Why should I choose the Teacher Education program?

This program is designed for students who desire to teach in public schools or private schools. Because of the growing Christian school movement and its need for teachers who have developed a Christian philosophy of education and have integrated their knowledge of the Bible with professional and general knowledge subjects, Grace University launched this program in 1998. Grace also recognized that qualified Christians can have a significant impact on society by serving as educators in public settings as well as other educational settings such as private sectarian or religious schools. The program has standard approval status with the Nebraska Department of Education (NDE). The goal of the program is to prepare educators in defined areas of endorsement who meet the certification requirements of the Nebraska Department of Education as well as the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI).

What type of degree will I earn at Grace University if I enroll in this program?

Graduates of the Teacher Education program will earn a Bachelor of Science degree.

What kind of jobs would be available to me after I graduate from Grace University with this major?

This endorsement will prepare the student to teach from birth through grade 6 in all schools and in grades 7 & 8 in self-contained classrooms.
