This M.A. cannot be taken as a stand-alone program, nor is it designed for students who hold a degree from another department, college, or university.

During the local public or Christian school year, Holistic Education candidates at Johnson University serve an internship that begins on the first day teachers return to the classroom and continues through the teachers’ final day. Interns complete base placements in their primary licensure area with two alternative placements in the other areas of licensure, other grade levels, and in public and Christian schools in various combinations. Successful completion of the program leads to licensure from the Tennessee State Board of Education; certification by the Association of Christian Schools, International (ACSI); and a Master of Arts degree from Johnson University.
