Do you hold a bachelor’s degree in a field other than education? Do you feel that God is calling you to teach?  The intent of the Master of Education in Teaching degree is to meet this calling through a focus on the development of deep pedagogical knowledge, research-based instructional design, and effective management skills which will benefit all learners in the classroom.
