Field Experiences

All Educational Administration students participate in an extensive yearlong leadership. The program works in partnership with the district, school or organization in which interns work to ensure high quality, rigorous field experiences. Further, we work closely with each candidate’s district/school/organization to facilitate the best possible intern placements and mentorships. 

In addition, over the course of their study, EDAD students are asked to explore settings beyond their workplace through alternate site visits and summer field work that explores the critical impact and importance of schools’ community engagement and partnership.
