Indiana teaching Licensure

Graduate Students who do not already have an Indiana Teaching License can earn one through the university's Transition to Teaching program. A Master's degree does not automatically confer licensure, but it demonstrates competence in the content area, which makes one eligible for the Transition to Teaching. Other qualifications necessary for application to the Transition to Teaching Program include an Undergraduate GPA of 3.0 or a GPA of 2.5 plus 5 years of experience in the field. This program consists of 18 semester hours of study in teaching pedagogy (3 semester hours of which are taken in the LLL department) and adolescent development, with supervised field experiences. Most courses are offered online, and include field experiences that can be adapted to accommodate working individuals.

See your advisor, Dr. Lisa Calvin, or Education Student Services (812-237-3131), for specific questions about teaching licensure in your area.
