The Pacific Union College Department of Education is dedicated to preparing the best possible teachers. To accomplish this the department seeks to meet several goals.
Classroom field experiences throughout the program
From the time of entry into the program the student will be regularly exposed to classroom teaching through observation, short-term field experiences, and full-time student teaching. These opportunities help make the student comfortable and competent in the classroom setting.
Exposure to college teachers who teach from their own real-life experiences
Our college faculty are all fully-certified teachers who have many years of experience in elementary or secondary classrooms. They bring to the classroom a rich practical background to share with teachers-in-training.
Development of a wide variety of teaching skills
Our program seeks to teach students to plan effective lessons, create an environment of learning, develop clear presentation skills, assess student learning, reach students with diverse needs, motivate learners, and behave professionally.
Full accreditation of credential programs
Our credential programs are fully accredited by the North American Division of Seventh-day Adventists and the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing, which gives assurance of a quality learning experience resulting in the desired credentials.
