The College of Education has designed its professional preparation programs to include a series of sequentially arranged field-based experiences. Depending on the degree option, these field-based experiences may be referred to as internships, practica, clinics, or supervised field experiences. Each field-based course requires, as a minimum, 45 contact hours per semester credit hour. Some programs, due to national or state accreditation requirements or Departmental policy, may require additional contact hours beyond the minimum requirement. Students should clarify requirements with their faculty advisor prior to registration.
Students are encouraged to make application 12 weeks prior to the semester in which the clinical or field-based experience is to be completed. Applications are available in the Office of Licensure, Standards and Clinical Practice, Room 114, first floor COE.
