The Department of Education programs are designed to prepare teachers for certification in Seventh-day Adventist church schools and in public school systems, as well as for graduate study in education and related fields.

The unit’s conceptual framework is built on the theme–“Holistic Preparation of Teachers for Service in a Multicultural Society” and provides the framework for the teaching and assessment systems. The fifteen conceptual framework outcomes are clearly identified in every aspect of teaching and of the assessment system to help students gain knowledge, skills, and dispositions to become effective teachers.

The Teacher Education Program is a member of the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education and it is approved by the Alabama State Department of Education, the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventist Department of Education, and the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE).
