Southeastern introducing new Teacher Education Licensure Track

The College at Southeastern is seeking to provide an opportunity for students to be equipped to minister to others through teaching at a time when there is a severe shortage of licensed teachers in North Carolina and many parts of the nation.

This licensure track will equip students to teach with compassion and competence as they help students learn in the classroom.  

Those who pursue the licensure track will have a variety of ways in which they can pursue teaching. Some may choose to teach in a public or private school, overseas missions context, as a bi-vocational ministry, or other non-profit work. No matter where students choose to serve, this teaching certification will equip students to be salt and light in a world that needs virtuous and compassionate teachers.  

The licensure track will be offered in conjunction with four Bachelor of Science majors, including English, History, Social Studies, and Bible. 



“Our current degrees at Southeastern provide a strong liberal arts basis for our students entering into almost any field to think critically and solve problems. The Teacher Certification Program removes barriers for students being led into the field of education so that they can quickly and practically follow God’s leading without having to pursue other credentials or alternative certifications through the state,” said Bryce Hantla, Southeastern’s new Associate Professor of Education, Associate Dean of the College, and Director of the Teacher Certification Program. “Our students will now be able to carry their passion for their subject matter into a secondary classroom and live as lights in a dark world in front of their students who desperately need to know Jesus, both in public and private sectors.”
