Designed to provide maximum flexibility and convenience as a fully online program, our bachelor’s degree in business education for 6-12 grade students can give you the foundation you need to thrive as a teacher — without ever having to travel to a university campus.

Liberty’s B.Ed. in Business Education is broken down into 4 major components: education courses, practicum and gate courses, business courses, and student teaching. Your education courses explore the major aspects any teacher has to learn, such as evaluating student learning, creating curriculums, and evaluating behavioral and individual differences between students.

As a business education student, you can complete additional courses focused on a wide range of relevant topics, such as accounting, business law, management, marketing, entrepreneurship, and information systems. The practicum and student teaching courses will then put your knowledge to the test. You’ll work in the classroom alongside a licensed teacher to see how the principles you’ve learned apply in the real world.
