  • This 36-credit, team-taught program is structured to address the educational needs of PreK-12 teachers, as well as other professionals who are teaching at places like Head Start, alternative and charter schools, or community colleges (in the US and abroad). 

    The program’s curriculum is designed to prepare educators to be research oriented and to be more effective and innovative in classrooms, schools, and communities.


    Students may choose the:

    •  Traditional cohort approach: This will allow you to build and maintain a supportive professional and academic network by moving through the sequence of courses as a group. You will take one six-credit course per semester for a total of six semesters and complete your program in two years.
    • Flexible option: This will allow you to tailor the program to your needs. You can complete the program in year by taking two courses a semester (one in Indiana and the other in Monroeville), or you can take each of the six courses, either at Indiana or Monroeville, in a sequence of your choice over a period of five years. 

    Courses offered during the fall and spring semesters meet on Mondays or Wednesdays from 5:15 to 8:45 p.m. Summer classes meet two nights per week during a five-week period.
