Accelerated Education Programs
The University of Evansville is working to meet increasing demands on teachers and for new teachers with the elementary and secondary transition to teaching licensure programs; both programs allow students with bachelor's degrees to secure an Indiana teaching license.
UE's elementary transition to teaching licensure program requires 24 credit hours and can typically be completed in one calendar year.
UE's secondary transition to teaching licensure program requires 18 credit hours and can typically be completed in one calendar year. Students may pursue licensure in high need areas such as life science/biology, chemistry, physics, foreign languages, and mathematics. Licensure can also be obtained in other areas, such as history, English, visual art, and music.
The tuition for both programs is offered at a significantly reduced rate to make it more feasible for those interested in enrolling. Current tuition rates are available on our Student Financial Services webpage.
Courses in both programs are completed at an accelerated pace. Both provide students with extensive internships in the classroom that prepare them for a full semester of student teaching with both a mentor teacher and a University supervisor for support. Students have the option of extending the program if they prefer a less demanding schedule.
