Clarion University has agreements for the Student Teaching semester with 70 school districts in Western PA as well as one district in Florida and International student teaching possibilities. More information about field experiences, required certification tests and clearances as well as student teaching may be found by visiting the Office of Field Services.
While the majority of Clarion education graduates find employment within the commonwealth, the high standards required to earn a Pennsylvania teaching certification make it highly portable to other states.
The skills and knowledge integrated into the Early Childhood Education program also prepare graduates to move into fields which combine content knowledge, leadership, interpersonal and organizational skills. They are also well prepared for graduate study in education.
