What opportunities are there for internships or other hands-on learning experiences?
CMU's education program offers hands-on experience at every level of the program: first-year observations, field experiences at the mid-level, culminating in student teaching for twelve weeks in the final year.
All hands-on experiences are connected with coursework, so students have the opportunity to talk about what they observe or do in the pre K-12 classroom.
