Geneva College

Departments

Department of Education 

Geneva seeks to prepare well-qualified Christian teachers for careers in both public and Christian schools. Teachers have great impact on the social, personal, and intellectual development of individuals.

We believe that Christians are called to develop their passion to teach individuals in a variety of educational settings. Distinctive to Geneva, our students develop a perspective on “teaching redemptively” in the classrooms.
