  • Student teaching is a 15-week internship in a public school of your choice. You will decide at what level you would like to teach and with whom you would like to work, though interviews with the mentor and principal must precede your acceptance at a school site. Additionally, you must have passed PRAXIS I (or equivalent SAT scores) in order to student teach. You will be certified to teach art for grades PreK-12 because of your four internships as a junior and senior.
