The B.S.Ed. in elementary education is intended to prepare students for successful careers as teachers of children in preschool, elementary-primary, and elementary-intermediate classroom settings. The elementary education degree is divided into two concentrations: early childhood, for preschool and elementary-primary school settings, and middle childhood, for elementary-intermediate school settings. Preservice teachers must choose one or both concentrations to complete the degree. Upon satisfactory completion of the program, you are eligible to apply for an Indiana teaching license.
