Student Teaching at Briar Cliff University


Iowa School Law requires each student in Briar Cliff's Teacher Preparation Program to complete a student teaching internship.

The student will make formal application for internship in the fall of the year preceding the one in which the internship will be undertaken. Forms for application and faculty recommendation are available by contacting the education department.

The internship is a full-time responsibility. The intern is required to follow the schedule and activities of the cooperating teacher, including after-school meetings and activities. This educational experience should be scheduled during a semester in which the student is free of other college classes, sports and work.
