Alumni Spotlight

Elizabeth Haken
Elizabeth Haken, MEd candidate, found herself searching for a program that was biblically centered and financially feasible. She explains, “I had waffled so long between getting a master’s in education or a master’s in mathematics. However, Maranatha offers an MEd with a math concentration —a perfect blend! The MEd in math, the biblical foundation, the academic advisors, and the scholarship for teachers all combined to make MBU a wonderful fit for me—an absolute gift from the Lord!”
