Creating the next generation of exemplary educators
Belmont’s School of Education programs have been developed to prepare you to become a teacher through a combination of theoretical and practical knowledge. Beginning as early as your first semester, you will spend time in classrooms where you will work collaboratively with community and faculty members to better understand the far-reaching impacts of generational poverty; where you will be encouraged to think creatively in the design of flexible learning environments; and where you will develop the leadership skills that will guide your journey toward a future in education.
Belmont’s student-centered Christian environment and small class sizes facilitate self-reflection and the development of the skills necessary to becoming an exemplary educator. Under the guidance of an experienced group of professionals, you will be encouraged to develop the unique gifts you possess that have led you to pursue a future in the challenging and rewarding field of education.
