Message from the Dean
I am glad to welcome you to our Bachelor of Arts in Education (BA Ed.) and Diploma in Education Secondary (D.Eds.) education programs. These programs integrate the latest technologies to provide a very exciting new approach to training today’s most needed educators. The School of Education at LivingStone International University (LIU) teaches liberal arts that include Bible-related courses intended to develop the moral and ethical character of the teacher.
The program scope includes foundations of education as well as professional courses that are designed to enhance the effectiveness of the teacher and to prepare him or her for the emerging contemporary challenges of the education sector. Professors will also teach many specialized subjects from their various fields of expertise.
At LIU we believe that a liberal arts component enhances any program of study. We see the liberal arts courses as providing the underlying tools and context that enable students to more capably exercise their specialized skills in their major field of study. The complexity of today’s world demands that students be conversant in areas beyond their own field of specialty, and a liberal arts foundation provides the tools necessary for growth and adaptation in an ever-changing global society.
As you come to him, the living Stone—rejected by humans but chosen by God and precious to him— you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. 1 Peter 2:4-5
