Field Placement

Field experiences are an essential component of the Teacher Education Program and help prospective teachers see the relationships between theory and practice. Field experiences include classroom observations and/or community service.

Students have an opportunity to observe master teachers, develop professional and personal strengths, and acquire essential skills necessary to become a teacher. 

Course Requirements

Field experiences are part of all EDUC courses and three TECA courses. Each course requires a minimum of 16 hours of field experience. Field experiences will be planned through the student's education course instructors and instructional associate. A field placement course matrix (PDF will open in new window) is available.

The Children's Center at Northeast Campus, accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children, serves as an educational site for Child Development and Education students, under the supervision of faculty and child development specialists.
