Information about Teacher Practicums

The Office of Clinical Experience and Partnerships manages the practicums in the Teacher Education program. The teacher practicum application process is extensive, requiring a background check, tuberculosis test, and several other documents. Many courses in the Teacher Education program require candidates to work in various schools and community agencies in the St. Louis area. Candidates must get clearance to work at these sites.
