Field Experiences

Each teacher candidate who has reached the appropriate level of competency will have a series of progressively responsible field experiences, linked to requirements specific to each program. The CPP facilitates making placements for these experiences. Prospective or current students should contact their individual departments for specific requirements and timelines.

Students enrolled in the teaching internship are charged a lab fee. This fee is used to cover costs related to clinical experiences.
