Teaching jobs in all sectors, including Christian education, are on the rise. As parents feel more empowered to make choices in their children's schooling, they are finding schools that align with their belief systems and values. Many Christian schools are looking for people with Christian education degrees to meet those growing needs. This Bachelor of Science (BS) in Elementary Education with an Emphasis in Christian Education degree program at GCU will help you learn, not only how to be an elementary teacher, but how to do it from a faith-based perspective. You will develop the skills needed to guide children through an academic journey infused with a biblical perspective. In addition, you will study child and adolescent development in both theory and practice through class and field learning experiences.
