Indiana State University is recognized as one of the best universities in the Midwest and aims to maintain that standing through academic programs that help students achieve academic excellence and professional competency. The school hopes to create a learning environment that will allow students to grow personally and professionally through interaction with classmates and faculty.
Indiana State was established by an Indiana statute on December 20, 1865 as the State Normal School. In its early days, the school’s purpose was to educate elementary and high school teachers. Today the school offers over 100 majors and degrees at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. The campus is located in the north side of Terre Haute, Indiana, and contains a combination of old and new buildings, many of which are in the process of being renovated and refurbished. The school also owns an outdoor field campus set on 93-acres of land and located 18 miles east of the school’s campus.
The school’s programs for Clinical Psychology and Geography have received national recognition, and the Master’s program for the College of Education was ranked as one of the top 100 in the United States by U.S. News and World Report. The school also has a notable athletic history, as basketball legend Larry Bird helped the school’s basketball team reach the final game of the NCAA tournament in 1979.
Indiana University offers a wide array of distance learning programs some of which are entirely online and others that require minimal on-campus visits. Students will have access to the same faculty, advisors and online resources as students in residence. Online programs can be completed at the undergraduate, graduate, doctoral and professional certification levels. Programs include majors like Aviation Flight Technology, Business Administration, Criminology, Technology Management, and Student Affairs and Higher Education.
