Indiana University East is a regional campus in the Indiana University system located in Richmond, Indiana. It is colloquially known as IU East. The local campus is four buildings on 174 acres and has an enrollment of 4573 students (fall 2014). It was established in 1971 as an extension of Earlham College. IU East offers four-year degree programs in areas of Business & Economics, Education, Humanities & Social Sciences, Natural Science & Mathematics, Informatics, General Studies, Nursing, and Social Work. There are also off-campus degree programs in Newcastle, Lawrenceburg, and Connersville, as well as online degree completion programs. The University also offers master's degrees in several areas.

Indiana University East grew out of an extension established at Earlham College that was operated cooperatively by Earlham and Indiana University. In 1967, the arrangement was expanded to include Purdue and Ball State Universities and the extension became the Eastern Indiana Center of Earlham College. Whitewater Hall opened in 1976 as the first of four buildings. This was followed by Hayes Hall in 1992, Middlefork Hall in 1995 (renamed Tom Raper Hall in 2009) and Springwood hall in 1999.
Master of Science Program Components
The Master of Science in Education program is based on the extended study and development of teacher scholars. Best practices in pedagogy and assessment guide a program built on the core propositions of the National Board of Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS). We work to ensure that teachers are presented with the opportunities to collaborate and grow as scholars and professionals.
Phase 1-Foundations of Effective Practices
The first component of the program is an intensive 2 1/2-week summer program followed by an online class and a research course in the fall. Through these summer and fall courses you earn a total of 15 credit hours. You will examine and analyze current prevailing practice regarding what is most effective and efficient in the way of programs, curriculum, strategies and practice.
Summer Coursework- Summer I Session (12 hours)
Fall Coursework (3 hours)
Phase 2-Area of Focus/Specialization
The second component, through which you earn up to 18 credits, combines your analysis of professional practice in your classroom and school with courses you select based on your professional development objectives. You will have the opportunity to research and share the practices you find most effective in your classroom. Students have the option of choosing from a variety of courses that will meet their professional/classroom needs. Additionally, we also offer the following optional specialization areas:
Online Teaching and Assessment (12 hours required)
Reading (12 hours required)
You must submit official transcripts, including work already completed and work currently in progress. The records should show a complete list of courses taken, grades received and any diplomas or certificates earned. Transcripts should also indicate the number of credits awarded for each course or the number of hours of classroom, lecture, and laboratory and include information about the school's grading scale.
