Elementary Education majors have a passion for helping children become curious, questioning learners. Students majoring in this field have active learning experiences including a full-time, full-year student teaching experience—the only in the state of Indiana—as well as opportunities beginning your first year of college to observe and work side-by-side with Butler faculty and veteran educators in actual PreK–6 classrooms and non-traditional sites, including The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis and Riley Hospital for Children. By completing the program and all required standardized tests, students will meet state licensing requirements for grades K–6 or Pre-K 3. By the time a student graduates from this program, they will have spent up to 1,500 hours in local classrooms preparing them to teach in a variety of school communities
