To truly breathe life into education, you need to experience what you are studying in an up-close and personal way. That’s why practical learning is built into our curriculum.
You’ll learn from educators who are extremely passionate about training you for your own future in education. Using HU’s conceptual framework program model, and checking in using a rigorous assessment checkpoint system, your progress will be closely monitored and supported to set you up for your state licensing test upon graduation.
From practicums during sophomore year to multi-week field experiences during junior year, you will earn plenty of hands-on opportunities prior to student teaching your senior year. Candidates also complete a three-week, full-day experience taking place in a culturally diverse setting. The variety of these experiences will help shape your education and future.
Each year, there are opportunities for you to enroll and maintain status in the education department. From taking and passing various Praxis courses to interviewing with the Teacher Education Committee, you will have continuous assessment and guidance to ensure you are progressing at the pace needed to successfully pass your licensing test at graduation.
The Huntington University Education Department is accredited by the State of Indiana and the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP). Each year, we report data to state and federal government agencies and accrediting bodies depicting income measures, outcome measures, and annual reports. Learn more to see those reports.
