General Requirements

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.


1. The student will demonstrate knowledge of the fundamentals of music.
2. The student will glorify god effectively through musical expression in all phases of church and school music programs.
3. The student will develop musical abilities through systematic classroom instruction and personal training.

Note: With the approval of the Chairpersons of both the Teacher Education Department and the Music Department the music minor may be adjusted to meet specific career objectives of the teacher education student.
