Other Concentrations

IUPUC education students can choose from six concentration areas. In addition to science, others include:

  

Science

As an Indiana University Bachelor of Science (BS) in Elementary Education student at IUPUC, your degree will lead to a general license to teach kindergarten through grade six.

To meet degree requirements under the Rules for Education Preparation and Accountability (REPA) program, you must also complete an area of concentration.

If you are interested in facilitating the early experiences of children in the sciences so they can develop the problem-solving, critical thinking, and other skills that empower them to participate in an increasingly scientific and technological world, consider a concentration in science.

With a concentration in this area, you will be involved in nurturing first-hand exploration and investigation among your students by providing them with instruction and content organized according to the broad concepts and theories common to all scientific disciplines.

You can also get involved in the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) student chapter at IUPUC. Involvement in NSTA is a great professional development experience that will advance your science teaching.
