You can transform lives as a teacher. In Butler's College of Education, you'll collaborate with dynamic, caring and energetic people to transform K-12 education as well.

We are the only program in Indiana that has elementary education majors teach for an entire year, in two different settings. You'll observe in real classrooms as a freshman. Your professors are there with you, explaining teaching practices. This means no surprises when you walk into your first classroom assignment.

Experience diverse educational models - urban, suburban, Montessori, charter, magnets and a new Reggio-inspired laboratory school - thanks to Butler's metropolitan location and partnerships with local schools. You can even student teach abroad.

You'll find lifelong mentors in our knowledgeable, mostly tenure-track faculty. They know their students well and can honestly assess your strengths and potential for future employers.

Principals seek out Butler-prepared teachers, saying our graduates know theory, research and practice better than most other candidates. Nearly 100 percent of recent graduates are working in education or pursuing advanced degrees.

Dr. Ena Shelley, Dean of the College of Education, thanks Indiana's teachers.  Watch now!
