Fieldwork, Student Teaching & Clinicals

Experiential learning is crucial to our school and programs. In addition to our rigorous academics, our focus on hands-on experiences not only prepares graduates to pass their licensure exams but also to enter the job market as top candidates.

Our students engage in a range of fieldwork and clinical experiences including urban teaching initiatives, service learning programs and practicums with our community partners, school districts and healthcare facilities. They also have the opportunity to work with on-campus centers such as our nationally-renowned Kinney Center for Autism Support and Education, the Center for Addiction Recovery and Education and the Institute for Clinical Bioethics.
