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.

While in the BCU teacher preparation program, we were guided by leaders who were truly passionate and experienced, and we learned with reliable, motivated peers; this program definitely set us up for success!
