The student teaching program is committed to securing quality internship placements with master cooperating teachers. This endeavor is made possible by establishing and maintaining strong partnerships with local schools.

The collaborative relationship between the UAB School of Education and local school districts allows for a unified educational experience where theory meets practice in an inquiry-focused and standards-based internship experience.

The student teaching internship is a culminating experience in all initial teacher certification programs. The 15 week internship is intended to provide an authentic and immersive experience where interns progressively assume teaching responsibilities.
