In order to fulfill the Field Experience component of Texas Teaching Certification, a student must complete either Student Teaching or Internship.
As part of the Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies degree requirements, all students must complete 6 credit hours of student teaching. Student teaching is 13 weeks of full time/unpaid time spent with a mentor teacher in a classroom. Substitutions for student teaching must be approved by an academic committee.
Student Teaching placements will be arranged by the Field Supervisor at the corresponding Educational Center closest to where the student is completing coursework. Deadlines for Student Teaching applications are March 15 for the following Fall semester placement, and October 15 for the following Spring semester placement.
NOTE: Student Teaching cannot be done during the Summer semester.
