Field Experiences

Anderson University’s School of Education delivers strong field-based programs designed to introduce candidates into the field early in their field of study. Each subsequent field experience builds in complexity and expectations as the candidates move toward student teaching. The Early Childhood program is developed to provide candidates with rich experiences working in a variety of settings with diverse populations.

The following courses require field experience components in regional childcare facilities and advocacy agents.  Additional time commitments will be required outside the regularly scheduled class meeting days/times.
