International Teaching Experiences

Undergraduate and graduate students in the School of Learning & Teaching can experience teaching around the world by participating in one of several international teaching experiences. Travel to New Zealand, Ecuador, Mexico, Kenya or Chile to explore school systems around the globe and gain cultural insight and competence.

International teaching programs range from two to 15 weeks and include home-stays, practicum placements, coursework, and sightseeing adventures.

These courses are open to undergraduates in the education & learning major, as well as students in our Master of Arts in Teaching programs.
