Properly trained Christian school science teachers can help revive high school students’ interest in the sciences. With a variety of math and science courses, PCC’s program introduces future science teachers to the biblical philosophies and practical application of general science, biology, chemistry, physics, algebra, trigonometry, and other disciplines. The program also provides instruction in understanding how students learn and develop, which helps science education students build effective communication skills and teaching methods for their future classrooms. The need for Christians in the ever-expanding field of science is great; and knowledgeable, articulate teachers can train a new generation of scientists to accurately study and apply God’s scientific principles to man’s needs.

Graduate Perspective

My science education degree gave me a view of science that does not contradict God’s Word. In fact, God’s Word is the center of my classroom! The intensive, core subject emphases on chemistry, physics, and biology were necessary to help me know my subject well. As a science education student, I had the privilege to watch godly teachers model the lecture/demonstration method of teaching well. It is this lecture/demonstration method that has my students glued to the content of the lessons I teach. As they continue to ask more questions, they learn a little bit more about God’s beautiful design in this world. And they love it!
