"What the teacher is, is more important than what he teaches."
  -Karl Menninger, American psychiatrist (1893-1990)

An Education minor at CCU trains you to impact lives through learning methods of effective teaching strategies and communication skills. You'll take classes in educational theory, curriculum and instruction, and in other specialized areas including reading and adolescent development. The education minor is a great choice if you're planning to work with young people in your chosen career, or even if you just want to volunteer and make a difference in the lives of others.

Education in the Christian University

Through the emphasis placed on the integration of faith and learning in your academic major and education minor classes, you'll be given the opportunity to reflect upon and practice your role as a Christian in your area of discipline and in society. Regardless of your major, the education minor will help you develop the knowledge and skills you need to enhance your professional and interpersonal skill set. You’ll be equipped to lead, instruct, mentor, coach, and interact with middle or high school-aged young people. Students have the option to complete 18 credits for the minor or 12 credits for an education specialization.

Dr. Debora Scheffel

Dean and Professor of Education
School of Education

Faith and learning are integrally related. An individual may have a formal education but lack deeper understanding of the meaning of knowledge, and thus neglect the larger metaphysical questions that render knowledge relevant to life's ultimate questions. I seek to continue to develop a philosophy of education consistent with faith that informs decision making in academia, education policy work, and education practice.
