The Education program at Ivy Tech gives future teachers the perfect opportunity to prepare for their career in education on day one, because in their first education class students are given field experience/observation time in a school setting. Students will be given the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of real-world experiences in the classroom like creating lesson plans, reading children’s literature, and work on community engagement efforts and literacy events like Dr. Seuss celebrations.
Education students are exposed to a wide variety of classes including a multicultural education course where students study how race, ethnicity, gender, and social economic status can impact student performance in the classroom. Students also take a course on exceptional children giving students the opportunity to work in special education classrooms in various school settings.
Graduates of our Associate of Science (AS) degree can seamlessly transfer to a four-year institution through our "Transfer as a Junior" program, entering at a junior status.

Please keep in mind, you will also need to be admitted to the four-year institution you intend to transfer to, admission is not guaranteed just by enrolling in a Transfer as a Junior program.
