Educate mind, body, and soul

Through the life of an educator and Christian, working through the lens of psychology, you will be able to see people more clearly and teach your message more powerfully. The experience you gain will give you the major tenets of human development, personality, social psychology, motivation and cognition. With these tools, you will become a more dynamic and flexible teacher to apply to multiple styles of learning and customize the approach per student need.

Program Overview

Child and adolescent development courses will allow you to make choices in the classroom about discipline, emotional well-being and group dynamics that will be beneficial to the student. You can build an environment that encourages mental health, self-awareness, and perseverance.

Your work in theories of learning will promote optimal development in your students.
