Field placements allow for each learner to build skills, knowledge, and confidence in his/her own pathway toward becoming a professional educator in real world placements.

The College of Education, Health, and Human Services Field Placement Office handles all assignments for Education practicums, student teaching experiences and internships for Health and Human Services programs.

Education Field Experiences

Field placement within Education programs and courses can be in the form of 1 credit practicums, in-class service learning, and student teaching. These courses require that a specific set of clearances and paperwork be on file in the Office of Student Success before students can enter their placements. 

Health & Human Services Field Experiences

Field placement within Health & Human Services programs can include in-class service learning and internships that are coordinated by the instructor of the course.
