Christian schools today need teachers who can teach world history on the secondary level from a solidly Biblical perspective. Faith’s Secondary World History program is designed to meet that need. As a graduate of this program, you will be prepared to step into a secondary world history class in a Christian school. Because Faith is approved by the Iowa Department of Education for licensure, graduates of this new program will have the highest possible credentials for teaching world history.


This four-year degree gives students a thorough Bible education (one of Faith's hallmarks) and quality training in education and world history. The advantage of taking this degree at Faith is that it helps students approach history from a Biblical perspective.

The Secondary World History Education program includes such courses as
• Western Civilization I and II
• American History
• World Geography
• Modern World History
• Ancient Near Eastern History
• Latin American History
• Cultural Anthropology
• Teaching Secondary World History


Faith’s one-year certificate will solidify your worldview on the important matters in your life and faith. The year you spend at Faith will provide a good foundation for entering the workforce or pursuing further education, especially in a secular college. The classes you take will also equip you to be able to serve effectively in your local church.



Our Secondary World History Education program will not only give you an excellent understanding of world history from a Biblical perspective, but it will also equip you to use that training in a secondary-level teaching ministry. Along with your history and education training, you will also receive the strong Bible-core education Faith is known for.

Faith’s accreditation and state recognition means you receive the best education to prepare you for future ministry. Wherever God will lead you, you will be equipped for teaching, for ministry, and for life.
