CPED 6534 Professional Internship in Secondary Education is open only to Secondary Education M.Ed. students. The secondary education students are pursing teaching licensure across a range of subject areas, including English language arts, ESL, foreign languages, math, social studies, and science.
The course runs three times throughout the students' program: summer, fall, spring. Each semester the course has different field-based experiences and a different purpose. Each semester requires a level of community-engaged fieldwork: the summer students are engaged with community-based organizations, then in the fall and the spring students are working in schools. Each semester the fieldwork is supported by a bi-weekly seminar.
