Education Department

The educators of today shape our leaders and world of tomorrow.

Overview

The mission of Evangel’s Education Department is to provide for the spiritual, intellectual, emotional and physical development of the Christian teacher.

All of Evangel’s teacher education programs are accredited and approved by the Missouri State Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE). Our teacher preparation programs prepare the next generation of educators to compassionately educate today's students using the most up-to-date and research-based pedagogy, skills, and strategies. Future teachers are equipped and empowered with skills and strategies to meet the needs of PreK-12th grade learners.

Educators aspiring to serve as leaders, specialists, and administrators target Evangel for values-rich graduate programs. Graduate programs in Educational Leadership, Literacy, School Counseling, Curriculum and Instruction Leadership, along with a doctoral program in Educational Leadership, Curriculum and Instruction prepare instructors to dive deeper into their chosen area of focus. These programs equip and empower our future school leaders.

Education graduates are instilled with a fierce dedication to reaching the needs of students, the local community and the world. The process is driven by highly qualified professors that have academic knowledge as well as practical and robust classroom experience.

Students find that all Education programs are dedicated to shaping caring, committed educators who integrate Christian faith and God's calling with passionate professionalism in the broad field of education to change the world.
