Theology Education

The Theology Education Program, a combination of a Theology major and Secondary Education minor, prepares candidates for becoming 5-12 theoloogy teachers. While a Minnesota teaching license does not exist for theology, our department pllaces the same requirements, as available, on students of Theology Education as programs leading to licensure. This program includes both foundational coursework as well as a student teaching experience.

Seeking Licensure

The Theology Education program is a non-licensure program. A teaching license in theology is not available in the state of Minnesota for recommendation of candidate or program approval. However, candidates that complete this program have many similar requirements that our license-seeking teaching candidates must complete.
