Student teaching is the final step in gaining teacher licensure. After completing all coursework in the MAT program, students must enroll in the Student Teaching Seminar course associated with the specific program content area.
Official student teaching placement requests are made only by the Student Teaching Center through the appropriate designated officials whether at the district office or school building level.
