2022-2023 Undergraduate Catalog

Teacher Education

Teaching programs require additional courses in educational methods. The professional education courses are included in this listing. See the Department of Educational Studies and Teachers College for the descriptions of these courses and other professional requirements of the teacher education program. In addition to required courses in educational methods, students seeking a license to teach in the modern foreign languages are required to complete a study program where the target language is spoken. The department and university will assist the student in finding a placement. Exceptions will be granted rarely and only with the permission of the chairperson and faculty of the respective language. (Students of Latin will design a program of cultural study in consultation with the Classics faculty.) Students are also required to compile and submit artifacts for their teaching portfolios that conform to the standards stipulated by the Indiana Professional Standards Board. For specific requirements, students should see the licensure area Web site or handbook.
