“There’s something different about MNU teachers,” is something we hear a lot about our graduates. We think it’s equal parts preparation and quality students! You will study topics in U.S. history, world civilization, politics, economics, sociology, world geography, classroom management, instructional technology and curriculum development. You’ll learn innovative techniques and the latest technology to prepare you to teach and motivate learners in your own classroom.
While you’re here, you can join the PTCO (Professional Teacher Candidate Organization), for great networking opportunities as well as training and preparation for the job search.
Based on your academic achievements, you can also participate in our chapters of the Gamma Chi and Pi Lambda Theta honor societies.
As a graduate you will complete all Kansas requirements for teacher certification. Our faculty will also help you find out how to become certified in other states.
Application to the teacher education program is a separate admission process than applying to MNU.
"My favorite class was ancient world because I think every person is curious about the beginning of humanity. So taking a class where we not only learned through the text, but actually did simulations of early civilization was exciting for me personally as a hands-on learner."
“I can’t imagine a better working environment or program… Students and professors seeking to affect positive change for Christ through our education system. This is a place to expand your thinking and experience a variety of opportunities that prepare you to do God’s work."
Nancy Damron, PhD
Dean of the School of Education
