Program Overview

The Education Program is designed to provide a foundation for leadership in educational service, both in public and Christian schools. Its courses are designed to give theoretical training, technical skills, and practical experience. The education faculty, serving as advisors to the students, is committed to help them achieve the competencies necessary for a successful teaching experience. Information on the Master of Science in Education can be found here.

Education Program Mission and Vision

We aim to prepare educators who will serve in their school community, strive for professional excellence, think from a biblical worldview, and pursue a life that glorifies God.

Corban University students are challenged to become learners, not just students. Learning is a process that is an active, creative, lifelong adventure. We believe that Christian students/teachers’ adventures need to be more than courses and competency requirements. A thorough foundation in God’s Word, in order to integrate it into their lives, is imperative. Our graduates are prepared for their first teaching job, but more importantly they are prepared for living. Most graduates accept jobs right out of college, and others continue their formal education in graduate school. In either situation, our graduates celebrate the adventure of learning and teaching.

A Four-Year Program

Corban believes the ministry of the Christian teacher can and must find effective expression in both public schools and Christian schools. Moreover, in our mobile society, and with the changes that may come in one’s personal situation, it may be necessary for the teacher to be able to make the transition from one sphere of teaching to the other. Thus it is our desire to prepare teachers who will be well equipped to serve in both the public and private sectors of education.

The Music Education major is a four and one-half year program.

Upon completion of all Education Program requirements, students receive a B.S. degree from Corban University, recommendation for an Initial Oregon Teaching License from Oregon’s Teacher Standards and Practices Commission (TSPC), and an ACSI (Association of Christian Schools International) Teaching Certificate.
