College of Education Graduate Programs
As an educator, you pass on the knowledge and values of our culture, from the mathematics that governs physics to a lens to study great literature. To become an effective teacher, you must master both knowledge and teaching strategies so all students can learn. To become an effective administrator, you must cultivate a safe, supportive, learning community that will help both teachers and students think critically and be life-long learners.
The Greatest Educator of All
Sure, you can enhance your career as a professional educator or become qualified as an administrator at other universities, but at AU you'll be encouraged to emulate the greatest teacher of all: Jesus Christ. With Him as the model, we teach you how to cultivate the patient, caring heart you'll need to inspire students and colleagues while you obtain the skills that distinguish you as one of the best in the field.
