Education Courses in Student Teaching
To ensure that future professionals are competent, the privilege of taking the course in student teaching (EDUC 349 and EDUC 449 or EDUC 359 and EDUC 459) is restricted to students whose cumulative grade point average through their junior year is 3.0 or better.
Additional requirements for all student teachers are good health, character, personality, and acceptable spoken and written English. Your placement in student teaching is contingent upon your acceptance by a cooperating teacher in an elementary or secondary school that has been approved by the Bucknell education department.
You must complete an application for student teaching by Nov. 1 of your junior year. The education department reserves the right to specify the semester during which you're permitted to enroll in student teaching. In addition, you are responsible for obtaining transportation to the placement.
You must apply to the Pre-certification, Initial Preparation Program no later than the first semester of your junior year.
