2020-2021 Undergraduate Academic Catalog

Education Field Placement Office

The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences Education program’s Field Placement Office works with students to individually plan and implement first year, sophomore, and or junior one-day-a-week field experiences, and their senior student teaching practicum, (if students are interested in Early Childhood Education, their program will include a junior student teaching experience and a seminar). The Director of Field Placement works with students as they articulate their specific classroom preferences and curriculum interests, and is available to support students throughout their undergraduate field experiences. During initial field experiences, Field Liaisons from the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences provide on-site support. During the senior student teaching experience, Education Program Supervisors supervise the classroom teaching practice, and students will enroll in a weekly reflective seminar.

Initial field experiences are integrated into the Education coursework, and course professors and the Field Placement Office work collaboratively to support students as they develop their emerging teaching practice. This is an essential way that the Education program integrates  theoretical knowledge with actual application. First year, sophomore, and junior field experiences prepare students for their senior student teaching experience.
