Experience in the Classroom

As a student in the Master of Arts in Teaching program, you'll be in your Marylhurst classroom primarily in the evenings and on weekends.

During the day, you'll be gaining experience in an elementary or secondary classroom — right from the beginning.

Field Experience

Your field experience in an elementary or secondary classroom begins the first term and continues for the following three terms. This provides you with a 12-month perspective of how teachers prepare for the start of school in the fall and maintain educational momentum throughout the school year. After a year of field experience, you are ready for two terms of full-time student teaching that starts in the fall of the second year.


Student Teaching

Student teaching takes place in elementary and secondary schools that collaborate with Marylhurst's unique master's in teaching degree program. Outstanding teachers in these schools become clinical faculty members who partner with Marylhurst. By providing guidance in the classroom and in the school community, Marylhurst's clinical faculty facilitate a student teaching experience that prepares you for your first year of teaching.
