By earning an Associate of Science in Education at Ivy Tech you can transfer to a four-year college or university, full time, without losing credits. At Ivy Tech, you'll save money on tuition while receiving an excellent foundation before successfully transferring into a bachelor’s degree program.

The education program helps future teachers prepare for a career on day one. In the first education course, students go into school settings for authentic field experience and observation time. From creating lesson plans to working on community engagement projects, students participate in a variety of real teaching experiences and scenarios.

The education program offers a diverse range of classes such as a cultural education class demonstrating how race, ethnicity, gender, and socioeconomic status can impact a child's performance in the classroom. Students also take a course on exceptional children, allowing students to work in a dynamic array of classroom and school settings from elementary school to high school.
