Field Experiences

Texas A&M University–Central Texas students participate in field experiences in local school districts each semester. Field experiences are connected to the concepts being taught in the Educator Preparation Program courses. These field experiences allow students an opportunity to work with groups of diverse students at several developmental levels.

Students must adhere to the Code of Ethics and Standard Practices for Texas Educators and TAMUCT Code of Student Conduct at all times. Additionally, students must dress in accordance with the respective school district's dress code.

Pre-Practicum and Clinical Teaching Placements

Application for Clinical Teaching is made while enrolled in Professional Development Block II, well in advance to enable the establishment of appropriate settings for each student. Applications are due October 15 or March 15 one year prior to the semester in which the student plans to participate in clinical teaching. The EPS office assumes full responsibility for contacting the public schools regarding placement of clinical teachers.
