IWU’s program also includes professional education courses that prepare students to teach in public and private elementary, middle- and high-school classrooms. Graduates are well equipped with the knowledge, skills, and dispositions necessary to be proficient performers and effective educators who make a difference in the lives of their students and colleagues.
