Change the World With a Christian Education Degree

Christian liberal arts, English major, Exercise and Sport Science, Music Department, Reasons to attend a Christian college, Teacher educationOne of Bluefield’s strongest programs is the School of Education. Students are able to earn their master’s degree with the quality education we have to offer. The program also completes the requirements for someone to receive their Virginia teaching licensure in four years. All teacher licensure candidates seeking to get into the program must not only meet certain requirements, but must also meet with the School of Education faculty for an interview. The students can choose to study to earn a Bachelor of Arts or a Bachelor of Science degree.

I believe it’s safe to say that a Christian education degree is vital to society. Teaching is a career that will never die. Bluefield is proud to generate strong, caring and most of all, knowledgeable teachers to work out in the career field. 91 percent of Bluefield’s School of Education graduates in the last two years are currently employed as elementary or high school teachers.

Bluefield College’s Department of Education strongly continues to help and guide students into developing and strengthening their gifts and carry them out into the world. At Bluefield College, the professors and institution as a whole want our students to capture their passion and go forth to transform our world. A Christian education degree is one way you can do this.
