Preparing excellent, impactful teachers

The education program at Trinity produces incredible teachers—because it’s more than just pedagogy and the classroom. The Christian perspective prepares teachers to cultivate relational peace, educational equity, and justice for all children and to impact every student’s life through excellence in teaching.

Earning a degree in education allows students to combine their passions for specific subject areas with their love of learning—and of helping others learn. Education majors have a unique opportunity to meaningfully impact the lives of their students while enjoying a work schedule that allows for work/home life flexibility.

Educators, regardless of their specialty area, are generally in high demand—creating a sense of job security not available in every industry. Trinity’s graduates work as teachers in elementary, middle, and high school settings—as well as in roles as administrators, school counselors, business education instructors, and more.
