Bachelor of Science in Education

General

Program Description

Criswell’s Education program affords students the opportunity to become teachers who are trained with a Christian-worldview to impact the lives and families of children. Beginning Fall 2016, the college will offer the Bachelor of Science in Education* (early childhood through sixth grade). This rigorous training includes both a biblical foundation and state certification, which will enable graduates to enter the classroom ready to engage minds and transform culture. Although approximately 9 hours longer than Criswell’s other Bachelor’s programs, the Education program is still designed to be completed in four years.
