Students engaged in this major will have immediate and continuing contact with children and the classroom. In the freshman year, each student is required to spend one hour each week in association with children; in the second year, one hour per week in classroom observation; in the third year, two hours per week is spent as a teacher’s aide; and in the fourth year, student teaching is done. Our own Christian academy is used as a demonstration-laboratory school.
Education majors must earn a C in all courses in “professional education” and in their “major” in order for the credit to count toward a degree.
