Practicum Experience

Education majors get a glimpse into their future during a practicum experience, where they spent time in a classroom getting practical experience in preparation for their student teaching placement. #DanvillePracticum

Special Education

Students enrolled in special education have the opportunity to student teach in public schools, intermediate units, approved private schools, preschools, state centers, adjudicated environments and hospitals. Student teaching assignments are located within seven select counties neighboring Bloomsburg University.

Intensive pre-student teaching experiences are also available through advanced sequence coursework and professional development schools.

To meet Pennsylvania teacher certification requirements, special education majors must have six credits of:

  • College level mathematics
  • College level English comprised of composition and literature

Requirements for the major include a minimum of 67 semester hours of professional education course work leading up to (prior to) student teaching. Incoming freshmen as well as transfer students are required to enroll in the Department of Exceptionality Programs’ Orientation to Special Education course (one credit) during the initial semester of enrollment in this program of study.
