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.
The Associate of Science in Education at Ivy Tech is a transfer single articulation pathways (TSAP) program that provides a clear pathway for graduates to transfer to a four-year institution to obtain a bachelor’s degree in Education.
