The Christian Education emphasis is comprised of two elective courses within the IDS program. These two courses are distinct to Regent and offer students an opportunity to learn more about the unique nature and characteristics of Christian education. These courses (UIS 320 and UIS 325) are also designed to equip those students who choose to teach in Christian schools with a better understanding of the underlying theology, philosophy, theory, goals, and expectations of Christian education from a Biblical perspective. Furthermore, this emphasis provides practical perspectives on faith/learning integration, classroom management, character development, and other areas of Christian education. Please note that these courses do not in themselves lead to state licensure, but must be taken as part of the IDS curriculum.
The Christian Education emphasis in elementary education at Regent has been approved by the Association of Christian Schools International.
