Field Experience

Our teacher candidates complete their practical preparation in the last semester of their graduate year by enrolling in a full semester of student teaching.

With the support of advisors and working teachers in the field, teacher candidates assume full responsibility for classroom instruction, putting what they’ve learned into practice.
