Student Teaching Experience


Student Teaching

Iowa School Law requires every teaching candidate complete a student teaching internship. It's both the most challenging and rewarding part of being an education major — and we'll help make sure you're prepared. 

You 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 recommendations are available by contacting the education department.

The internship is a full-time responsibility. You are 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 you are free of other college classes, sports and work. For more information, contact the Department of Education.

I am extremely happy I made the right decision to finish my education at a school that cares so much about me and my education. Thank you BCU for giving me the opportunity to turn my dreams into reality.
