If you have a non-education baccalaureate degree, you have the choice of completing a certification-only option that leads to an Indiana teaching license. This option is for either Elementary Generalist (K-6), Middle School Only (5-9), or Secondary (5-12). This option is a non-degree undergraduate program that leads to an Indiana teaching license. It follows the same set of EDUC courses that degree seekers take without requiring general education or content specific courses.
