The College of Education recognizes the critical role of education in the development of an individual and advocates for the availability of biblically based learning models for every child worldwide. Courses in principles and practices of education, early childhood, children at risk, and curriculum development prepare those with a desire and calling to work with children and youth to serve both in and out of a traditional classroom. The College of Education believes that access to good education is key to the development of communities and trains men and women to invest in and empower youth to reach their God-given potential.

Course Credits Type Number

The UofN uses two types of credits, FLW (full learning weeks) and LCU (learning component units).

FLW credits are used with traditional residential courses and one of these credits requires a minimum of 50 hours of documented learning activities; these include our normal lectures, small groups, one-on-ones, etc.; and some of these activities are nonformal, in addition to the classroom activities and study assignments.

LCU credits are used for part-time programs like evening courses, intensive seminars, distance learning and other non-residential courses. Each LCU credit requires 25 hours of focused learning activities which can be spread over a period of time.
