Degree

Overview

The M.A. program in Post-Baccalaureate Elementary Education with Grades K-5 Licensure introduces students who completed a bachelor’s degree in a field other than education to the fundamentals of teaching in the elementary school. Students receive instruction in lesson preparation and presentation, classroom management, integration of a biblical worldview and application of biblical knowledge to the teaching profession, the development and implementation of curriculum, and current trends in education. They apply these skills during a term-long student teaching experience under the mentorship of expert teachers. Successful completion of the program leads to licensure from the Tennessee State Board of Education; certification by the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI); and a Master of Arts degree from Johnson University.
