Field Experiences

The Professional Field Experience Program is designed to develop teaching skills in the context of a public Pre-K-12 school. It allows students to participate in a variety of teaching situations in different schools, with a focus on inner-city, low-income, high-minority settings. The goal of preclinical field experiences is to allow teacher candidates to gain an understanding of the needs of diverse learners. Field experiences allow for school partnerships that facilitate the development of preservice teachers, support the teaching process on each campus, and improve student achievement in the public schools.
