BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN GLOBAL EDUCATION
The Bachelor of Science in Global Education is a 4-year degree that prepares students to teach in private schools as well as internationally through Association of Christian Schools International (ASCI) accreditation. The degree focuses on teacher preparation for TESOL (Teaching English for Speakers of Other Languages). Courses include survey of teaching methods, instructional design, educational psychology, behavior and classroom management, teaching language arts and fine arts, trauma informed teaching, integrating faith and education, international student teaching, and empowering ESOL teachers (teaching English for Speakers of Other Languages).
If you are thinking about missions, education, cross-cultural ministry, international teaching, international business, or teaching in major metro areas, this degree program could be for you! The Global Education degree will be delivered in a hybrid model with both live and online courses that allow a student to live and study anywhere in the state and even travel and work internationally.
By itself, the Global Education degree does not lead to public teaching licensure within the state of Ohio, however graduates of the program may apply for an alternative resident educator license in TESOL from the Ohio Department of Education. Ohio TESOL licensure allows the educator to teach in public school settings. Ohio licensure may require modifications to the program and/or additional courses as the state directs.
