Career Opportunities

A World of Opportunities

Teachers with advanced and specialized training in International Education are in high demand around the world. CBU's Master of Science in Education with a Specialization in International Education prepares students to become culturally competent and effective teachers in K – 12, domestically as well as abroad.

Credentialed Teachers

Students in the program have the option to complete their Master's degree while also pursuing a Single Subject or Multiple Subject credential qualifying them to teach in public schools, grades K-12, in California as well as overseas.

International Schools

Working with the Network of International Christian Schools (NICS) and other recruiting agents, we can connect graduates with teaching positions at 20 schools across 16 countries. NICS conducts recruiting events at the CBU campus every Spring, and actively seeks our students. Graduates hired by schools associated with NICS commit to teaching overseas for two years, earn a salary, and are welcome to bring spouses and families in most situations.

Non-International Schools

The program also prepares students to teach English in non-international schools, many of which actively recruit Americans as English instructors.

Additional Overseas Settings

Beyond international and non-international schools, graduates of the program may also be interested in teaching or service positions at orphanages, missionary schools, non-profit agencies, and non-governmental organizations (NGOs).
