Teaching and Learning Major

Bachelor of Arts in Teaching and Learning

The Bachelor of Arts in Teaching and Learning program is available to those who do not desire to obtain a professional teaching license but aim to work with — or on behalf of — children or youth as part of their professional career. It is also available to students who complete 1-2 years in one of the School of Education licensure programs but then decide that a licensure program does not meet their professional goals. This non-licensure program provides an option for these students to stay within the domain of education.

Teaching and Learning Program graduates earn a bachelor's degree in Teaching and Learning, a minor in an approved CCU program, and a CCU area of emphasis in Biblical Studies. Students will receive supervised clinical practice experiences in a variety of school settings.

Teaching and Learning at CCU

At CCU, we see education and teaching as imperative to impacting the world for Christ — and opportunities to do so are everywhere. If you have the ability to clearly explain complex topics as well as inspire others to think bigger than themselves, then this program is an opportunity for you to develop the knowledge, skills, and dispositions necessary for a professional, education-related career in diverse vocational settings.
