From campus to classroom in just two semesters

Students eager to get in front of students in the classroom you won’t be disappointed! We focus on integrating theory and practice by providing field placement opportunities within the first two years. Beginning sophomore year, students will spend time observing and participating in classrooms of local schools, completing two intensive fieldwork experiences prior to student teaching.

These opportunities for students to perfect their teaching skills before completing their degree contribute significantly to Iona’s impressive job placement rate, which is among the highest of all schools in the area.
