The Internship Program is an intensive, full-time/full-responsibility learning experience providing a supervised, structured, field experience for which interns will receive the salary of a first year teacher. The internship is usually for one semester under the guidance of a mentor teacher, school principal, and university supervisor and satisfies the student teaching requirement resulting in an approved program verification for initial licensure.
Interns need to register for student teaching.
Internship placements are usually available in high need licensure areas such as special education. Often special education candidates are already employed by a school through TTE status.
An average of 5-6 students completes an internship each semester. Those interested in an internship attend a meeting subsequent to the Student Teaching Meeting Part II which provides in-depth information on the program. Please check the Calendar page for specific dates.
