Field Experiences & Internships

At Ashland University’s College of Education, we believe that field experience makes a tremendous impact on each student’s college and future life as a teacher.

As a student in one of our programs, you’ll likely complete more than 150 hours in field experiences in a variety of school settings before your 14-week internship (student teaching). Our programs provide you with the necessary knowledge, skills, dispositions, and opportunities to build your confidence in order be successful in any classroom from day one.

Stateside Teaching

The Dwight Schar College of Education also partnerships with school districts in South Carolina and Florida, where you can complete seven or 14 weeks of your internship in the south through the Southern Internship Program. This program provides you opportunities to step out of Ohio and experience teaching in other locales and gain experiences that often lead to a valuable first position.

Take Your Teaching Global

Ashland University is proudly one of 15 institutions in the U.S. that are members of the Consortium for Overseas Student Teaching (COST). Through this program, you can apply to complete seven weeks of your internship through COST in countries including Australia, Greece, and Ireland.
