What are Clinical Experiences?
Our teacher education programs require a number of courses with practicum field experiences as well as internship or student-teaching requirements. Each practicum will provide extended time in a school setting to observe in the classroom, examine the dynamics of the school, assist the mentor teacher with classroom tasks and teach lessons. Placements will be made by the Director of Clinical Experiences, ensuring that the practicum or internship meets the student’s degree program, academic requirements, and in schools representing the racial/ ethnic, socio-economic, and linguistic diversity in our region. All teacher licensure candidates are required to complete all program practicum field experience requirements for licensure.
For any questions regarding clinical experiences, practicum and/or internships, please contact:
