The Education department offers a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education with two different foci: Birth-3rd Grade and 1st-8th Grade. This program is designed to prepare future teachers for Arizona state certification and to also prepare for continued studies in graduate school.

The program emphasizes Christian and professional maturation as well as excellence in teaching from a culturally-relevant perspective.

The Elementary Education department 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. By the way, AIC doesn’t have a separate placement office, rather all faculty work with with students through the department head to assist students in finding employment subsequent to graduation.
