As technology increasingly shapes our world and our society, it is imperative that schools have highly qualified teachers prepared to equip their students with necessary computer skills.
When you study computer science education at SBU, you will take courses in computer science and web design, while also receiving a thorough training in methods of teaching, educational psychology and classroom field experiences. When you graduate you will be completely prepared to take and pass certification tests for any state looking for computer science secondary teachers.
Christian faith is intentionally integrated in both the computer science and education curriculum, distinguishing SBU's program from that of other institutions. Christian principles are discussed in the classroom and applied to educational strategies, philosophies, and best practices. At SBU, we approach education and teaching from the basis of a Christian worldview.
You will be challenged to consider your job to be more than just teacher but also role model and servant leader. You will learn to view the classroom as a mission field in which well-trained Christian teachers are desperately needed.
