Field Experience and Student Teaching
The Office of Field Services includes Field Experience and Student Teaching. Field experience is an integral part of the initial certification programs offered in the Department of Education. The Field Experience component provides school-based participation for the teacher candidate throughout the phases of the certification programs and culminates in Student Teaching. Student Teaching takes place during the very last semester after all academic coursework has been completed.
All Education Majors will need a minimum of 150 hours of Field Experience to enter Student Teaching.
