Field experiences provide you the chance to go out into the classroom and gain practical experience, which is critical to finding a teaching job after graduation. The University of Mount Union’s CAEP accredited Teacher Education Program candidates spend more than 600 hours gaining experience in real classroom settings, observing, assisting and teaching. Because of these field experiences, you will have the opportunity to discover what does and does not work in a classroom setting as well as apply strategies learned in your courses and find out what will be your best practices.
Mount Union students can also take advantage of our clinical exchange programs. Students can broaden their horizons by choosing a clinical placement through the Chicago Semester Program or at a Native American reservation school.
