Being a teacher is both very challenging and incredibly rewarding. We believe that future teachers educated from a Christ-centered perspective will be better prepared to meet the needs of children in a multi-cultural society whether in public or private schools.
We offer Minnesota state-approved teaching licensure for K-8 with middle school endorsements in communication arts and literature, mathematics, science, and social studies. We also offer Minnesota state approved licensure for grades 5-12 in Broad Field Social Studies, English, and Studio Art. Students desiring to teach in Lutheran schools take additional coursework for certification by the Evangelical Lutheran Synod.

Teacher at Columbia Elementary
|“The Bethany faculty members are very nice and helpful, and they know us all on a personal level. This was important for placing us with our student teaching host teacher. I thought they assigned me with an excellent teacher, and I can see that other student teachers were placed in great environments as well. This comes from knowing our personalities and how we work.”
