The Bachelor of Education program (B.Ed) in India prepares students for becoming teachers. This course was previously only available to graduates. B.Ed is now an integrated college course, as a result of the Ministry of Human Resources taking into account the greater demand for the teaching profession.

This integrated course can be taken after completing your 10+2 education. It takes only four years to become a graduate and B.Ed-qualified educator. According to the traditional path, you would have to finish the B.Ed course in 2 years and graduate in 3 years.

Educators wishing to teach in primary and secondary schools should have a B.Ed degree, so they can teach science and arts from the perspective of a teacher.

Specializations of B.Ed. Course:

B.Ed. (Computer Science), B.Ed. (English), B.Ed. (Commerce), B.Ed in Home Science, B.Ed in Biological Science, B.Ed in Mathematics, B.Ed in Economics, B.Ed in Political Science, B.Ed in Computer Science, B.Ed in Social Science, B.Ed in Physical Science, etc.

It is possible for students to complete two degrees at the same time by taking light subject courses in the B.Ed. program. Many students opt for MBA courses due to the high returns they receive from MBA positions. In spite of the fact that it is possible to complete two degrees simultaneously, it is recommended that both degrees be completed in two different academic years.
