Field Experience (Student Teaching)

One of the main reasons for the success of Fitchburg State University graduates is the strong regional network of pre-practicum, and practicum (student teaching) sites. In all programs, Education majors begin pre-practicum work in their freshman year which increases as they move towards their senior year of a field-based immersion experience followed by a semester of student teaching. This intensive hands-on experience makes for a smooth transition into the field of teaching.
