School of Education Internships

Elementary, Secondary and Special Education

The NSU School of Education actively promotes and encourages you to seek out internship opportunities. The Office of Field Services coordinates all practicums and student teaching experiences.

Real-world student teaching practicums and experiences are integrated throughout each teacher preparation program, beginning in the sophomore year. In this program, you'll be placed in preschools and K-12 districts to gain valuable educational experience from highly qualified classroom teachers.
Field experience requirements, placement options, and length vary by program, so it's important to consult with your advisor or the Field Services Office to guide your decisions. Advising sheets for each level are located on the Current Students page.
Northern is proud of its tradition as a teacher preparation university and the exemplary teachers we graduate. Our goal is to prepare our teacher candidates based on the five points of our Conceptual Framework:
1. Knowledge of Self
2. Knowledge of Content
3. Knowledge of Learner
4. Knowledge of Pedagogy
5. Knowledge of Self as a Teacher and a Member of a Learning Community


In addition to the resources below, we encourage you to visit the NSU Career Center for more information regarding internships.
