Practicum in Public Schools

There are two courses in the program that include a field experience.

  1. EPI 0945 Diversity in the Classroom Field Experience
  2. EPI 0940 Professional Foundations of Education Field Experience

EPI students who are employed as full-time teachers or long-term substitute teachers will be able to complete all of the field experience requirements within their own classrooms/schools. You will not have to take any time off from work to complete your field experience packets.

EPI students who are not employed as full-time teachers or long-term substitute teachers will have to spend two days in a classroom to complete the EPI 0945 Diversity in the Classroom Field Experience and three days in a classroom to complete the EPI 0940 Professional Foundations Field Experience. If you are working, check your schedule for the class dates and plan accordingly. Here are some examples of how you can plan your experience:

The EPI Coordinator will arrange all field experiences and assign schools and mentors.
