Earning your Bachelor of Education (B.Ed) in Chennai

Published on: Oct 29, 2010

If you love sharing knowledge and want to help others be successful in life through education, a career as a teacher could be a good option. To teach at high-level primary and secondary schools in India, you must first earn a Bachelor of Education (B.Ed). This programme requires the completion of a standard bachelor's degree as a prerequisite and is typically one year in length, though there are exceptions. Colleges that fall under Tamil Nadu's Directorate of Collegiate Education require candidates to pass a common entrance examination before they can be admitted.

B.Ed Coursework

During your B.Ed programme, you can expect to take a mix of core, elective and optional classes. Core classes are mandatory introductory courses designed to give you a general overview of teaching methods and India's educational system.

Core classes may include:

  1. Challenges in Education
  2. Current Issues in Education
  3. Education in Emerging India Society
  4. Educational Technology and Management
  5. Psychology of Teaching and Learning

Electives are supplementary courses that delve further into educational themes and topics. You are usually able to pick a couple of elective classes during the degree program.

Elective courses may include:

  1. Curriculum Development
  2. Environmental Education
  3. Human Rights and Education
  4. Pre-primary Education
  5. Women's Education

Optional courses focus on specific subjects you can teach when you graduate and serve as your major track of study.

Optional courses may include:

  1. Biological Sciences
  2. Economics
  3. History
  4. Mathematics
  5. Tamil

Before graduation, you might complete an internship or other teaching-assistant programme to help you practice and apply what you've learned.

Teaching Careers

With a B.Ed, you can teach at the pre-primary through high-school level. Depending on which optional courses you took during your B.Ed programme, you might become a math, science, history, or English teacher.

In addition to your main job, there are several other teaching pursuits you might consider. You could work as an independent consultant for a company that requires your particular expertise on a project, or you could set up a training programme for students who need help passing a standardized exam. If you want to reach many students from around the world, online tutoring might be a good option.

If you would like to advance further in the field, perhaps teaching at the university level, you might also think about pursuing a Master of Education degree.

Colleges Offering a B.Ed in Chennai

Most of the colleges in Chennai offering a B.Ed are specialty schools that focus solely on education degrees, and several, such as the Institute of Advanced Study in Education and St. Christopher's College of Education, are gender-exclusive. However, there are many education colleges to choose from in Chennai with a variety of options for you.
