In the world of higher education, Excelsia College holds a strong and secure place
When choosing a degree or a higher education provider, there are many important questions for individuals to consider. How do you choose the right institution, or the right degree? What should you focus on? How do you weigh up the different elements involved? So much seems to be at stake.
People can often focus overwhelmingly on some of the most evident aspects of choosing the right provider, often missing other equally important, but less obvious factors, such as their faith and spirituality.
You’ll learn how to teach with heart, inspire greatness, create a learning community and encourage independent thought and respect in your classroom.
Studying a postgraduate course at a faith-based higher education institution brings in numerous advantages and long-term benefits. It presents students with a Christian worldview and community that will benefit them greatly, both today and in the future.
A child’s experiences in his or her early years form the building blocks of that child’s spiritual foundation. Considering that, on average, children spend about 1200 hours in school each year, the people with whom a child interacts during this timeframe will have a profound impact on their spiritual development. Enter Excelsia College – one of Australia’s leading Christian higher education provider. The teacher education courses are taught from a Christian worldview. You’ll learn how to teach with heart, inspire greatness, create a learning community and encourage independent thought and respect in your classroom.
You can help to shape the next generation with a professional education degree from Excelsia College. Whether you are looking to take your next career step or expand your expertise, Excelsia has a course to suit you. The School of Education at Excelsia has a strong curriculum for 2019, featuring an online Master of Education, blended Master of Teaching Primary or Secondary. These well-developed courses will empower students, by allowing them to determine the time and pace of their education, thus enabling them to create a bespoke pathway through the curriculum. The way these courses are structured will help students excel academically and professionally.
Dr Peter Stiles, Head of Initial Teacher Education, says the College emphasises the education of the whole student — intellectual and spiritual. While the College’s academic record is impressive, the attention to students’ spiritual development is paramount. “Christians are known by the quality and depth of their love, and the same can be said of the community at Excelsia College,” says Dr Stiles. “Our students experience this love abundantly in the friendly body of believers, and they are encouraged in turn to express the love of Christ through kindness to their peers, care of the environment, and service to the community. In learning by doing, our students not only grow to deepen their faith in Jesus Christ, they also seek to live by and embody His teachings.”
Excelsia College believes that spirituality is such an important factor in making life decisions, that it cannot be dismissed. Being a Christian is not always about conventional religious priorities. It’s about becoming a complete person and enjoying life to its fullest. The higher education provider you attend could be the most life-changing decision you’ll ever make.
It is not too late to pursue your dream career in 2019.
It’s important to remember that higher education can be more than just an academic experience – it is a community. While that can be true of any tertiary education, it can be especially important if you’re hoping that your learning experience will provide an environment for you to grow in faith.
