Bachelor of Arts in Teaching and Learning (B.A.)

Develop the knowledge and skills needed for a professional, education-related career in diverse vocational settings.

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. In addition, students can earn 3-6 graduate-level credits in this program that can be applied to the Master of Arts in Curriculum and Instruction in the College of Adult and Graduate Studies.
