Office of Field Experiences and Clinical Practice
Field experiences and culminating clinical practice are integral components of all initial educator preparation programs in the College of Education at Georgia Southern University.
The College has strong longstanding collaborative partnerships with P-12 schools to provide a wide-range of field experience and clinical practice sites for teacher candidates. Teacher candidates receive diverse field experiences within a 70 mile radius of each Georgia Southern campus. (This policy does not apply to candidates in the fully online MAT programs in Elementary Ed, Health and Physical Ed, and Special Education.) Formal agreements are signed annually between the College of Education and school districts to identify the roles and responsibilities for each partner involved in field experiences. See policies and procedures web page relating to field placements.
