Christian Education

Teach in a Christian or private school in a cross-cultural setting with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Christian education from Global University.

Course Outline

Quality Christian leaders are required in all areas of life. It’s not just about conventional church ministry; we need great Christian leaders in education environments too. That’s why we offer an undergraduate degree in Christian Education. Global University allows you to study within a flexible time frame wherever you are. You may be re-training for a career in education or you may feel that this degree pathway best suits your God-given calling.

The Bachelor of Arts in Christian Education provides the student with the knowledge and skills necessary to serve in the teaching ministry of a multicultural church. While NOT a teacher certification program, the successful completion of this degree may qualify the student to teach courses in some Christian or private schools and/or administer programs in Christian education.

After successfully completing this curriculum, students will be able to interpret the Bible properly, demonstrate a working knowledge of the history and application of Christian theology, preach and teach the gospel in a multicultural setting, conduct programs in their churches that will facilitate the ongoing vitality of the Christian faith, teach courses in schools and/or administer programs in education, and pursue advanced academic studies.

*Note: This program requires students to complete a Christian Education pre-test and post-test. The pretest must be completed before students request the final exam for their first course. The post-test is a part of the undergraduate capstone requirement. It is recommended that students begin working on the essay and verbal components of their capstone within six months of graduating. The post-test and Graduate Follow-Up Survey should be completed during their last course. All four capstone components should be submitted before requesting the final exam for their last course. There is no cost for these assessments.
