Graduate Student Teaching


Graduate student teaching is an all-day twelve to fourteen week culminating clinical experience (typically split into two six to 7 week placements) for all teacher candidates who have a Bachelor's Degree and are seeking their Master's Degree and initial certification in a teacher educator program.

Job-Embedded Student Teaching with an Internship Certificate

Teacher candidates completing their Graduate Student Teaching who are currently employed as a full-time classroom teacher, in the area they are being certified, may be eligible to complete their placement in their classroom while being employed full-time.

Teacher candidates must obtain a Internship Certificate in order to be eligible for a job-embedded placement.

Eligibility is dependent upon the teacher candidates' New York State Certification Requirements, the position in which the candidate is employed, classroom composition, and approval from their Graduate Program Director, The Office of Clinical Experiences and Partnerships and The Certification Office.

To determine eligibility and submit an Internship Certificate Proposal For Graduate Practicum or student teaching, teacher candidates must visit the Internship Certificate Page on the Teacher Certification Office website.

Teacher candidates will be notified via email of the decision.
