School of Education

Education is a cornerstone of society. The work of teachers, counselors, and educational leaders is vital to not only individual students, but also to the future of our communities. You can make a tremendous difference as an educator.

As part of PLNU's School of Education, you will be supported by a strong network, connected to issues and people in the field, and equipped with the confidence to succeed. You will be joining a group of students, faculty, and alumni who are well respected throughout the local education community for their deep commitment to their craft and calling.

Opportunities for Engagement

Developing into a world citizen doesn't only happen inside the walls of the classroom — it happens by coming face-to-face with new opportunities, people, places, and ideas. From real experience that counts toward your credential hours and reading workshops, to a free California Teachers Summit and a free four-day course to prepare you for the CBEST, the School of Education offers many opportunities for meaningful engagement.


Our faculty serve as both teachers and mentors, committed to guiding you toward a full and purposeful education. By helping you explore thought-provoking and influential ideas and engage complex and difficult questions, you'll have access to an environment devoted to the pursuit of truth. An education at PLNU is both transformative and meaningful.
