Language Arts

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.

If you are interested in introducing children to the proper use of English and using language for good oral and verbal communication, consider a concentration in English/language arts. With this concentration, you will engage your students in learning to understand and appreciate good English in different types of writing and how to effectively employ the art of language in their writing.
