School of Education

With very careful planning, a student may earn a teacher's certificate for senior high/junior high/middle school while working toward a bachelor's degree in the College of Arts and Sciences, while still completing the requirements for each in four years. For details, see the School of Education Undergraduate Program Bulletin.

Most undergraduate professional education courses numbered 301 and above (except H340, K306, P312, and P313) are closed to students who have not been admitted to the Teacher Education Program. Students are encouraged to apply for admission to the Teacher Education Program during the second semester of their sophomore year. Criteria for admission are:

  1. An overall grade point average of 2.500 or higher.
  2. Completion of Communication and Culture C121 or C122 and English W131 or its equivalent with a grade of at least C in each. C121 may not be taken by correspondence.
  3. Successful completion of the state-mandated PRAXIS I Pre-Professional Skills Test (reading, writing, and mathematics).
  4. Completion of at least 21 credit hours of course work in the major (15 credit hours completed and a maximum of 6 credit hours in progress) with a 2.5000 (except mathematics 2.000) or higher grade point average.

Initial Teaching License

Senior High/Junior High/Middle School Settings

A candidate must take certain required course work in three broad categories:

  1. General education: humanities (including oral and written expression), life and physical sciences, social and behavioral sciences;
  2. Professional education;
  3. Subject matter concentration(s).

Courses used to satisfy general-education requirements also may be applied to fulfill requirements for a subject matter concentration. In such a case, the course may be used to meet all requirements to which it will apply, but the credit hours may be counted only once toward the total 124–146 credit hours needed for a degree. No courses below the 100 level and no College of Arts and Sciences 'J" courses may be used to meet this requirement.

Licensure in any of the areas offered by the School of Education of Indiana University requires completion of specified general-education and professional courses in addition to the completion of the subject area or areas. To be eligible for secondary levels and K-12 school settings licensure, at least one content area is required.

All secondary programs are under revision. Please contact a School of Education advisor at (812) 856-8510 or TeEdAdv@indiana.edu for accurate and current information.

The school offers three outstanding degree programs: the two-year Associate of Science program in optometric technology for optometric technicians and opticians, the Doctor of Optometry program for the education of optometrists, and the graduate program in vision science, which leads to the Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy degrees for those interested in research and teaching.

Optician/Technician Program

Students completing the program are qualified to begin a career as an optometric technician or an optician. The general nontechnical courses, such as English composition and required electives, may be completed either before or after the technical courses. An additional option allows students to become laboratory opticians by completing courses in lens surfacing and fabrication (optician's laboratory concentration).

Doctor of Optometry Program

A student may be admitted to the school's Doctor of Optometry program after earning a bachelor's degree or after completing a minimum of 90 credit hours in the College of Arts and Sciences. Major areas of concentration are typically in the physical, biological, or behavioral sciences, but other fields may be selected. General courses specifically required for admission to the optometry program are listed in the School of Optometry bulletin.

Bachelor's Degree—O.D. Program

A student who is admitted to the School of Optometry after completing 90 credit hours in the College of Arts and Sciences and who has satisfied the fundamental skills, distribution, and major concentration requirements, including a concentration in a department of the College, may apply 32 credit hours in optometry as electives toward the bachelor's degree to be received in the initial major. See also "General Requirements for Bachelor's Degrees" in this bulletin.

Courses for the Nonmajor

Certain courses offered by the School of Optometry, such as those that examine fundamental aspects of vision, may have application to the career fields of students completing majors in other degree programs. With the necessary prerequisites and permission of both the instructor and the dean of the School of Optometry, a nonmajor may be allowed to register for one such optometry course per semester or summer session. For advice on optometry courses that might fulfill a specific objective, the student should consult the Office of Student Administration, School of Optometry 310, (812) 855-1917.

Studying Abroad

The College of Arts and Sciences encourages students to take part in programs of overseas study sponsored by Indiana University (see the section "Overseas Study Programs" elsewhere in this bulletin). However, students may apply to programs administered by other institutions and organizations. Credits from non-Indiana University programs may be accepted as transfer credit, subject to the following conditions:

  1. Indiana University admissions policy limits the acceptance of transfer credit from study-abroad to programs administered by a regionally accredited U.S. college or university, or by a foreign institution recognized by the ministry of education of the country as a university-level institution.
  2. Credit can be awarded only upon receipt of an official transcript, or equivalent document, listing specific courses taken and grades assigned. The amount of credit awarded by overseas study may not exceed the number of credit hours that can be earned at Indiana University in the same amount of time.
  3. The assignment of equivalent Indiana University course numbers or undistributed credit for course work transferred from non-Indiana University overseas study programs is subject to the approval of the appropriate academic departments and an academic assistant dean of the College of Arts and Sciences.
  4. Course work not approved for transfer as credit in a particular academic department may be accepted, with the approval of the College of Arts and Sciences, as College of Arts and Sciences foreign study credit. However, no more than 8 hours of such credit can be counted toward a degree in the College of Arts and Sciences.
  5. In cases where courses taken abroad fall into a set sequence of courses at Indiana University, the relevant academic departments may at their discretion require examinations before any transfer credit is awarded. Specific examples include courses in foreign languages, applied music, music theory, mathematics, and natural sciences.
  6. Overseas study programs vary greatly in quality. No transfer credit at all may be awarded for programs of uncertain quality, despite the issuance of a transcript.
  7. Students denied transfer credit for overseas study may seek credit by examination, as outlined elsewhere in this bulletin.

To assure that credits can be accepted from a particular overseas program, students are urged to submit a Credit Transfer Agreement form to the Office of International Admissions prior to committing themselves to participating in the program. Forms may be obtained online from the Office of Overseas Study (www.indiana.edu/~overseas/programs/noniu.shtml)

Under certain circumstances students may be permitted to use Indiana University financial aid toward programs sponsored by organizations other than Indiana University. Information and application forms may be obtained from the Office of Overseas Study, Franklin Hall 303, (812) 855-9304. For such an application to be approved, the course work undertaken overseas must be integral to the student's major program at Indiana University, and the application must be approved by the student's academic department and the Office of Overseas Study.
