Accelerated Education Programs

The University of Evansville is working to meet increasing demands on teachers and for new teachers with new accelerated education programs – the transition to teaching licensure program and the accelerated elementary education degree. Both programs allow students with bachelor's degrees to secure an Indiana teaching license.

UE's 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.

Complete your application to the Transition to Teaching program.

The University's accelerated elementary education degree is a 48 credit hour program. Students can complete this program in as little as three semesters if they have already completed the necessary prerequisite courses.

Complete your application to the accelerated elementary education degree program. Select Elementary Education (AEE) as your program area.

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.
