The mission of the Education Department at Lancaster Bible College | Capital Seminary & Graduate School guides our thinking and practice. We exist to prepare and disciple teachers to be relevant, relational and reflective practitioners who think biblically and impact the educational community. This program is delivered in a blended, accelerated, cohort-based model that allows life-engaged adult learners to complete an advanced degree without uprooting life at home and work. Students participate in a learning community that blends online education with on campus residency experiences. When you earn your MEd from LBC | Capital, you will get:
