Follow the footsteps of your unforgettable high school teacher
You probably had a great teacher or two, people who were inspiring and funny and smart. They saw the world the same way you did, only clearer, and helped you see it more clearly too. They believed in you and treated with dignity, like someone capable of contributing to the world and making a happy adult life for yourself. At Susquehanna University, you can become that favorite teacher to generations of future students.
Starting your first year, you’ll go into secondary classrooms and get field experience right away. You’ll do observations, tutor one-on-one, lead small groups and more. You can even take advantage of our study abroad opportunity in Chester, England, so you can add international classroom experience to your résumé. Adding a certification such as English as a Second Language (ESL), leadership or diversity studies can make your application even more relevant and marketable. By the time you start student teaching your senior year, you’ll already have more than a 150 hours of classroom experience, so you’ll walk in like a pro.
You’ll graduate with the academic expertise to shine in your discipline and be comfortable no matter where you land your first teaching job. Your professors will help you find a position, just as they did the graduates before you, nearly all of whom got accepted into a job or grad school within six months.
