If I already work in a school in some capacity, can I do my field experience there?
Typically, you will do your field experience in a setting outside of your normal working situation.
Where can I get information about an upcoming field experience?
You will receive information about field experiences from an Office of Student Services staff member or your class instructor at the beginning of the semester in which you are participating in a particular field experience. Additional information can be found at: http://coe.unomaha.edu/oss/studentteaching.php
Can I arrange my own field experience?
No. The Office of Student Services (Roskens Hall 204) will work with your instructor and area school districts to make the proper arrangements.
