Field Services is the section of the Education Division that works to facilitate field experience and practicum placements for Observation and Participation (O&P) courses and Student Teaching. Field Services ensures that the teacher candidate has on file the proper documents so that s/he may be placed in a classroom setting. Teacher candidates are required to complete a specified number of field experience hours in addition to their coursework.
Field Services is devoted to placing Chaminade undergraduate and graduate students in both public and private schools in order to give the pre-service teacher diverse experiences.
All students enrolled in a licensure program must read the Field Experiences Manual and fill out the FAQ document. Students must submit their completed FAQ document to Field Services within their first term of enrollment.
