Secondary English/Communications Concentration
You will focus on special content in drama, writing and literature, as well as core biblical- and theological-based courses and contemporary classroom methods.

On a practical level, you will be able to better promote intellectual and spiritual growth in your students.
“The classes in the English track of Baptist Bible Graduate School's Master's in Christian School Education program have challenged my critical thinking skills and my ability to be discerning in my teaching. Teaching and learning to teach with and through a Biblical world life view is the most important strength of the program. A biblical world life view approach to literary criticism and classroom teaching has been integral to my philosophy of teaching English.”
- Jeremy Kemmerer, Graduate Assistant, Department of English and Communications at Baptist Bible College, Class of 2008
“The classes forced me to do extensive study in my field and challenged me to examine and modify my thinking. I most appreciate experienced, caring professors. I felt that I learned as much from their example in the classroom as I did from their teaching.”
- Heather Kocher, Graduate Assistant, Department of English and Communications at Baptist Bible College, Class of 2010
