Students wishing to teach overseas must take:
- EDC 554 – Student Teaching Abroad
Student teaching is an integral part of the MIC program, offering our graduates the tools and networking opportunities only afforded through the real-world experience of teaching in a classroom. Students can apply for local or overseas student teaching opportunities:
- Student Teaching Locally: this site will provide you with the information you need to apply for student teaching within the requisite timeline for degree completion.
- Student Teaching Overseas: this is a University-hosted site that provides you with information on who to contact in order to be placed in a foreign country for student teaching through the national Consortium for Overseas Student Teaching (COST).
