Master of Science in Elementary Education (Grades 1-6) / Additional Certification/Endorsement
Alliance University

Program Details

This Christian and Missionary Alliance institution offers a range of undergraduate, graduate, and seminary degrees and certificates. Students will be prepared to pursue their calling throughout their careers. Alliance believes spiritual growth and character development are just as significant as academic achievement. 

The Graduate Division of the School of Education is committed to preparing candidates with practitioner and research-based methodology that is character-based, integrating the historical evangelical Christian tradition of the university, so they are ready to enter the inclusive classroom.   

Our conceptual framework guides the curriculum, instruction, structure, and assessment for the professional education programs in the School of Education. The framework, based on the SALT acronym representing Service, Academics, Leadership, and Teaching, is comprised of a standards-driven, student-centered, assessment-based, collaborative approach. Teacher candidates are instructed to be “the salt of the earth.” This summarizes the belief that candidates and professional faculty in the School of Education strive to become, by God’s grace, individuals who reflect the properties of salt. They are to season and enrich the lives of others. They are to become the preservative of hope and encouragement to others. They are to become a healing agent serving others who need help overcoming the difficulties of life.
