The internship is an opportunity for education students to deeply explore a subfield of education by working full time at a pre-approved site for the entirety of a block. Students will translate theory to practice by applying their knowledge and skills in a professional setting where they will deepen their examination of educational policies and/or practices under the guidance of a site supervisor. While the primary goal of this experience is for students to learn what it means to work in the field of education, the internship should also help students gain a clearer sense of what they still need to learn, while also providing an opportunity to build professional networks. (Not offered 2020-21).
Prerequisite: consent of instructor & Declared Education Major or Minor.
