Teaching Degrees in Indiana

Before earning an Indiana teacher license, one must obtain a bachelor’s degree from one of the teaching schools in Indiana or from an approved out-of-state program, receive mandatory first aid training, and pass certification exams. Many schools in Indiana can prepare an individual to apply for an Indiana teaching license, but each has a unique approach to teacher education. Some schools focus solely on elementary and high school teaching while others offer many specialized programs such as school counseling, special education, and technology education.

The degree that prospective teachers earn determines which type of Indiana teacher certification they will seek later, so it is important to research specific schools and degree programs before enrolling. Read on to discover more about the four largest schools offering Indiana teacher education: Indiana University, Purdue University, Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis, and Ball State University.
