Music Department

The Music Department exists to prepare Christian musicians for career ministries in performance, teaching, church worship arts and varied music-related vocations. Students develop and share their God-given abilities by participation in ensembles, recitals, concerts, service projects and ministries. Through these experiences, the Music Department brings the whole person into the learning process through the integration of curricular and co-curricular activities and provides for the dynamic integration of Faith and Learning, together with Character and Intellect. This approach, along with the study of music theory, history, worship music, pedagogy and performance gives students the skills to become highly effective in their chosen field.

Teacher Education Department

Because we believe “teaching is a calling,” the Teacher Education Department seeks to cultivate a uniquely Christian learning community through coursework with in-field experiences, a yearlong clinical practice, and faculty support of candidates in their pursuit of truth with godly character for service in public, private and international schools teaching in grades Pre-K through twelve. The Georgia Professional Standards Commission approves the programs offered and grants graduates eligibility for teacher certification. Certification of graduates gives access to teach in Christian, international, private and public schools.
