The Graduate College at Grace University is doubling its size, adding three new highly sought-after programs.
“We are excited to offer our community more options for Christian higher education at the graduate level,” said Dr. David M. Barnes, president of Grace University.
The Teacher Education graduate department has added two 16-month accelerated degree programs. The Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) is designed for those seeking a Nebraska State Teaching Certification. It is for students with a bachelor’s degree, who have never held a teaching certificate, and who want Nebraska Department of Education Certification. The accelerated program enables individuals already possessing a non-educational bachelor’s degree to begin an elementary or secondary education career focused on serving students in business, English, history, mathematics, music or social studies. The MAT integrates classroom management techniques and technology skills with a strong Biblical worldview. Students are prepared to serve locally and internationally in public, private, or parochial school environments.
The Master of Science in Education (MSEd) exists to develop servant leaders within the education profession through excellence in biblically integrated instruction and student-focused service learning. The MSEd degree is for professionals who have already earned a teaching certificate and want to further develop their teaching skills, study the latest research in curriculum and instruction, and earn a Nebraska ESL (English as a Second Language) Endorsement.
The Graduate College has expanded its Counseling Department to include a School Counseling track. The State of Nebraska only allows certified teachers to become school counselors. This track enables experienced teachers to enhance their career skills. As school counselors, graduates have the opportunity to impact public and private schools students in a new way.
