The Education Program at Warner Pacific University is Christ-centered and dedicated to serving and learning in the urban context by preparing highly effective, culturally competent, professional educators from diverse backgrounds who think critically, act with integrity, work collaboratively and serve with passion and purpose.
A Bachelor of Science in Early Childhood/Elementary Education prepares candidates to obtain an Oregon Preliminary Teaching License in Elementary – Multiple Subjects, which is issued by the Oregon Teacher Standards and Practices Commission (TSPC) upon successful completion of all program requirements.
The BSED at Warner Pacific University is part of the Paraprofessional Education Program (PEP). The PEP is for candidates currently employed by one of the five partnering school districts in Multnomah County: Centennial, David-Douglas, Gresham-Barlow, Parkrose, and Portland Public Schools. The PEP is designed to support para-educators in earning a Bachelor of Science in Early Childhood/Elementary Education that will lead to a preliminary teaching license in elementary – multiple subjects.
