The Student Teaching in China program provides UMSL College of Education teacher certification students the opportunity to teach in Fuxin, China for up to one semester. At the Fuxing Experimental School, student teachers develop an intimate awareness of Chinese culture. During the semester abroad, teacher certification candidates will apply and practice the knowledge and skills gained in earlier coursework and internship experiences, just as in a U.S. classroom. Student teaching in China, however, affords the chance to adapt to new situations, problem-solve within a unique setting, and to use your acquired knowledge in a far different culture.
