Faith Integration

SBU's Graduate Education programs have been intentionally designed to model how the Christian faith shapes expertise, practice and experiences in professional educational settings. To assist students in developing as transformative agents in today's schools, our programs provide a foundation to become both scholars and practitioners — a synthesis of academic knowledge, practical skills and servant leadership. We desire that our students become true servant leaders who are able to integrate their faith into their practice to make a difference in today's society.
