The Education department currently offers a bachelors degree in elementary education (grades 1-8). In the near future after final approval from the Higher Learning Commission, the department will also offer a degree program in early childhood education (birth-3rd grade). Both of these programs are designed to prepare future teachers for Arizona state certification and/or to continue studies in graduate school.
The Programs emphasize Christian and professional maturation as well as excellence in teaching from a culturally-relevant perspective.
The Education department also offers the Arizona state course requirements for the structured english immersion (SEI) certificate endorsement. For further information on these certificate endorsements, contact the AIC Education Department Chairperson or the Arizona Department of Education.
