Trevecca’s Bachelor of Arts in studies in education is a program that provides a non-teaching alternative for students who do not complete the university’s student teaching requirement, who do not pass the required testing for admittance into the School of Education or who do not desire to pursue teaching licensure. This program prepares students for roles working with children where a teaching license is not required, such as substitute teaching, childcare centers, summer camps, and more.

Program Benefits

  • Learn from faculty who possess high degrees in their fields, who have relevant and valuable real-world experience, and who make an effort to know you personally.
  • Enjoy our small class sizes and supportive campus community.
  • Take advantage of incredible internships and job opportunities available in the exciting Nashville market.

What to Expect

Trevecca’s School of Education undergraduate and post-baccalaureate programs are designed to prepare you for a teaching career. However, we know that some students may not complete our student teaching requirement or may not pass the required testing for admittance into the School of Education. The studies in education program provide you with a non-teaching alternative if you fall into one of those categories.

Additionally, some students may not desire to become licensed teachers. If you have been admitted into the School of Education and have met all other requirements for graduation but still don’t intend to pursue your teaching license, you’ll need to meet with the Director of Teacher Education to discuss whether the studies in education program is the best path for you.
