The goal of the Education Department is to provide a strong academic clinical-based preparation program and to prepare quality educators who are committed to professional excellence and who positively impact student learning. Elementary Education prepares teachers for kindergarten through 12th grade. Students pursuing this field often minor in psychology, ministry, or special education and have greater opportunities for employability.
In all programs, we offer the opportunity to have either an urban or international field experience that enhances your ability to teach from different perspectives while also learning about the culture you are in. Previous participants have shared that everyone pursuing education should take part in this opportunity!
We also have a partnership with the local school district where our students, after completing sixty hours of observations, can apply to be a college-based para educator where they serve special education students. This opportunity allows are students to be in classrooms early in their schooling and at the same time, earn a salary.
The Secondary Education-Math program content follows the recommendations of the Association of Mathematics Teacher Educators, the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, and the Mathematical Association of America, and meets teacher certification requirements in most states. Teachers of mathematics in both public and private middle and high schools are very much in high demand and thus choosing a career in this field would be beneficial to both yourself and students you will teach.
The Physical Education major certifies a student to teach physical education in primary through twelfth grade. The main reason students choose this major is to teach physical education in the public or private school system. Students who want to coach a particular sport in the school setting are required in many states to be employed in the school system in which they are coaching. The employment combination of teaching and coaching is a common opportunity in education today.
The psychology major is designed to introduce students to a broad view of the field of psychology, while at the same time providing the expertise needed to excel in the discipline. Psychology majors will have the chance to interact with many of the major theories and gain an understanding of the role psychology plays within the broader scope of all academic disciplines.
There is an increasing demand for health and human services professionals specializing in the growing healthcare industry who are passionate about making a significant difference in their community. A Bachelor’s in Health and Human Services prepares committed professionals to serve society by connecting underserved populations such as children, the disabled, the elderly, at-risk-youth, and those in need with access to community resources and support services like healthcare, housing, mental health and addiction services, and more.
The Criminal Justice program at Central Christian College of Kansas embraces our redemptive role in society and the call of God to provide communal justice. This requires that the student not only understand the professional skills related to criminal justice but also the personal perspectives and dispositions needed to become effective agents of justice in a global community.
