All teacher education candidates must complete 300 hours of field experience prior to preservice teaching. The Field Experience is to provide education majors in their junior and senior years of college with an optimum learning experience in urban public- and state- accredited private school classrooms, and communities, thereby making their transition from student to professional more effective and less stressful. This is accomplished through both Practica and Clinical experiences according to the descriptors outlined by NCATE Standards. Candidates should note that the opportunity to participate in field experiences/preservice teaching and therefore to finish programs depends on the candidate’s ability to satisfy criminal background check requirements.
