Preparing Educators as Leaders

Internships in education and wellness professions

Students who complete internships in education or the wellness professions support the work of programs that the world needs to interact.  At the KU School of Education, we encourage you to take advantage of as many pre-service field experiences as possible - internships included.  

Internships for Teacher Education Students

For elementary teacher education students, the internship experience during your spring semester is a component of the overall student teaching experience. Please visit the Student Teaching page for more information.

Professional Development Schools (PDS) Alliance Internships

Students at the KU School of Education who choose to participate in the PDS Alliance program are eligible for a 16-week internship experience, working with our local partner school districts.  To learn more about this hands-on learning opportunity, visit the PDS Alliance Program page.
