Students engage in field experiences that include observational site-visits, tutoring opportunities, two practicum placements, and a full-time student teaching experience. These field experiences are structured so that candidates have opportunities to apply what they learn in class to real teaching situations. After graduation, you will be prepared to teach in the area of your choice or go on to further study. Graduates become pre-school, elementary, or high school teachers in a variety of settings, including public, private, or parochial schools, or even take their talents overseas. They also go on to graduate school to obtain a masters or doctoral degree in their area of specialty. The strong practical education coupled with the liberal arts education you will receive at The Catholic University of America will give you the skills you need to be the best teacher for your students.
