Cairn University is excited to offer several new academic programs in Fall 2020. These new majors will prepare students for important and growing fields in education, business, and ministry.
The new Special Education PK–12 major is designed for future educators who specifically want to teach students with special needs. Students will learn to be effective educators who can serve students well by taking courses in Applied Behavior Analysis and completing 200 hours of integrated special education field experience and practicums.
Also offered through the School of Education is the new TESOL (BA) major. In this program, students will learn how to properly teach English to those who are not fluent through a study of linguistics, culture and community, grammar, and pronunciation.
Another new education program is the BA in Studio Art and MS in Education dual-level program, which will nurture devoted artists into effective educators. The five-year program offers a course load that both feeds artistic passions and develops the skills needed to teach art to others.
Offered through the School of Business, the new Finance major teaches students essential financial management skills in a field projected to grow by the US Department of Labor. A dual-level finance program was also added, allowing students to earn both a Finance (BS) and an MBA in just five years.
The School of Divinity will also offer a new dual-level program for their Master of Divinity (MDiv). Just like the BS in Bible (Christian Studies) and MDiv program launched last fall, students can study youth ministry and simultaneously complete the MDiv in just five years in the new BS in Youth and Family Ministry + MDiv dual-level program.
Whether it’s education, art, finance, or ministry, all of the University’s new programs will produce biblically minded, well-educated, and professionally competent men and women of character.
