Put your passion for education into action
No matter what field your bachelor’s degree is in, you can become a teacher.
Changing careers can be daunting, but with Bethel University’s on campus Transition to Teaching program, a one-year program will take you from your current career and put you in the classroom. Graduates will be prepared, not only as effective teachers, but as ethical school leaders.
This popular 12-month program has new cohort groups that begin in May and October. Your hard work culminates with you earning your Indiana teacher’s license. Students can enroll in the online option or the on campus option. For on campus, classes meet evenings, on the campus of Bethel University in Mishawaka, Ind., from 6 – 10 p.m. Your first semester will engage you in the principles of teaching in lectures and classroom work. During second semester, you will have fieldwork to complete. This is addition to the evening courses. Your last semester, you will complete 14 weeks of full-time student teaching.
If you are inspired to work with children in grades kindergarten through sixth, you will complete 24 credit hours. The secondary program, grades five through 12, requires 18 credit hours.
Seasoned professionals, our faculty provides you with the expertise and mentorship you need to grow as both a student and a person. Upon graduation, you’ll have gained the networking opportunities you need to take the next step in your education career.
