In the parable of the talents, Jesus describes a “steward” as one who has responsibility for someone else’s treasure. As a teacher, you will have responsibility for a very precious resource – your students. At Huntington University, our conceptual framework (program model) will help you become an effective steward of priceless young minds and hearts. 

Top-Notch Programs

Accredited by the State of Indiana and accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) and nationally recognized by the same organization, our education department offers programs for students who desire to become teachers at the elementary or secondary level. All-grade majors will be licensed to teach art, music or physical education/health. We also offer a major in special education. Teacher education programs include a planned series of courses, a series of field experiences, and student teaching during the senior year. 

Continue Your Education at HU

Our Master of Education (M.Ed.) program helps practicing teachers extend their professional knowledge and skills and update their licenses. We have a number of classes to choose from in a hybrid format.

Students may also participate in Kappa Delta Pi, International Honor Society in Education. Second semester sophomores, juniors, and seniors whose cumulative GPA is in the top 20 percent of the major are eligible for induction if they have "exhibited the ideals of scholarship, high personal standards, and promise in teaching and allied professions."
