An Environment of Endless Curiosity

Maybe you played school endlessly as a child. Perhaps you've known forever that you wanted to make a difference in a classroom of your own. Or maybe your life was forever changed by that one teacher who took the time to understand you and help you love to learn. If the thought of teaching tugs at your heartstrings, you belong in the School of Education at Indiana University Kokomo.

Here, we believe in the power of teachers to change the world for the better. Our program will prepare you for the challenges, responsibilities, and abundant rewards teaching brings with it. You’ll be out in the world, gathering hands-on experience in an actual classroom, beginning in your very first semester. Theory and practice go hand-in-hand in our program.
