Thank you, Fred and Judy Klipsch.

Your gift is helping us prepare the next generation of Indiana's educational leaders.

There's no greater opportunity to change the world than through teaching.

Are you up for the challenge?

Starting with the 2018-19 year, students in the Klipsch Educators College will experience one of the most innovative teacher preparation programs in Indiana and the nation.

If you are among them, you'll graduate with the knowledge and skills to serve as a teacher-leader who inspires young people and makes a difference in your community.

We are committed to preparing K-12 teachers who are:

  • Talented in instructional delivery and skilled in classroom management.
  • Experienced in building meaningful relationships with students who have diverse backgrounds and educational needs.
  • Values-oriented, passionate, and proud to be educators.

Why choose Marian?

You can be confident that the mission-driven Klipsch Educators College is proud to be preparing the next generation of educational leaders with the skills and abilities needed to consistently achieve exemplary learning outcomes for all students.

If you're passionate about teaching, learn what you are made of at Marian University. Join the Klipsch Educators College and earn your degree from a university that's a national model of excellence for developing transformational K-12 teachers and school leaders who want to serve their communities.

We've adopted a fresh approach to teacher education that's transforming schools throughout the United States. Here are a few highlights:

  • A five-year program that includes a one-year residency similar to those at Harvard University and New York University.
  • The residency is comprised of a one-year paid teaching and mentoring experience during which you'll receive additional supervised training to connect with students in high-need schools. This includes a $18,000 paid masters degree PLUS a $12,000 residency stipend.
  • Courses are delivered in an accelerated, eight-to-ten semester format.
  • High-achieving high school graduates who enter Marian with AP credit, dual credit, and/or who take summer courses may complete the program in fewer than ten semesters.
  • Courses and learning outcomes are focused on building competency-based master skills.
  • You will receive early, frequent, and varied classroom experience, including post-graduate mentoring from a master teacher for up to one year.
  • For a global perspective on best educational practices, you will study abroad in high-performing schools.
  • Upon completion, you will earn both a bachelor's and a master's degree in education.
  • You could graduate with little to no student debt.

What will you study?​

You will become exceptionally proficient in your chosen content area(s), including in-demand specialties like special education, mathematics, biology, and chemistry, and English as a second language.
