Clinical experiences can take place as soon as a student enters a teacher education program. Students observe in a variety of diverse settings, including urban classrooms, classrooms with special needs populations, and community agencies serving youth. Students spend at least 100 clinical hours working in classrooms with P-12 students. The capstone of each program is the student teaching experience, which takes place during a student's last semester (some majors offer year-long placements).
Numerous scholarship opportunities are available to teacher education majors across campus. Apply to education scholarships March 1-31 of every year.
