Prepare America’s youth for a successful future. If you already hold a bachelor’s degree in a field other than education, the graduate Certificate in Transition to Teaching in Secondary Education can help you attain an initial secondary teacher certification.* Learn to meet the changing needs of today’s grade 5-12 adolescent students while you engage in core content classes through affordable online courses and a 10-week student teaching experience. You’ll learn best practices for secondary students, how to incorporate digital technology into your curriculum, and how to customize instruction for diverse learners.
You will be required to complete student teaching as well as embedded field experiences in a school near you throughout the program. Through the student teaching experience, you’ll be able to put into practice what you research and learn in your online courses. If you don’t reside in Indiana, you should determine requirements to apply the Indiana initial license for teacher licensure in the state where you intend to teach.
