    Indiana University School of Education

    • The School of Education of Indiana University is one of the top-ranked schools of education in the United States, with a presence on the two core campuses of IU, Indiana University Bloomington and IUPUI. It offers a range of degrees in professional education: a B.S. in teacher education, leading to a teaching license, M.S., education specialist (Ed.S.) and doctoral (Ed.D, Ph.D.) degrees.

      There are 5 Departments in IU's School of Education:

      Counseling and Educational Psychology
      Curriculum and Instruction
      Educational Leadership and Policy Studies
      Instructional Systems Technology
      Literacy, Culture, and Language Education

      In May 1923 the School of Education became autonomous from the College of Arts and Sciences. In 1925 the first B.S. in education was granted; in 1929 the first M.S., and in 1932 the first Ed.D. The Ph.D. with a major in education has been awarded through the University Graduate School since 1924.

      In 1951 the School of Education moved into a three-story limestone building. In the 1960s and 1970s, the Indiana University School of Education grew to become one of the largest schools of education in the United States. In 1992 the School of Education in Bloomington moved into a new W. W. Wright Education Building.

      IU's School of Education counts some of the country's leading scholars and educational leaders among its faculty and alumni, including former US Secretary of Education Rod Paige. It has been accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) since the foundation of NCATE in 1954.

      US News & World Report have consistently placed the School among the top 20 graduate schools of education in the United States since the rankings began in 1987.

      As of April 2006, U.S. News has ranked the following graduate program areas in the top fifteen nationally:
