“This is a degree created by teachers for teachers with real-classroom applications and relevant, current information,” says Dr. Valerie Jones, OCU’s Teacher Education Department Chair. “Students can also expect prayer, devotions, and the Christian Worldview in every class.” 

The degree will be available online and takes 2 years to complete. Classes are designed to be taken one course at a time, with scheduled breaks for holidays and with the start of the school year in mind. Each course lasts 6 weeks and costs $1,014 or $338/credit hour, although students may qualify for Financial Aid.

2. An undergraduate cumulative GPA average of 3.0 or an undergraduate GPA of 2.75 and 9 credit hours of graduate courses with an overall 3.0 GPA  

*This program does not lead to initial licensure or certification. The expectation is that an applicant is a practicing teacher as many of the courses require experiences in a classroom.
