Global Student Teaching

Today's teachers must be able to work effectively with students from diverse cultural backgrounds. Through Marymount's Global Student Teaching Program, student teachers have the opportunity to see firsthand how culture affects instructional practices and learning. They will also gain invaluable experience teaching in a diverse classroom.

Through the Global Student Teaching Program, students complete the first seven weeks of their student teaching experience abroad. The second seven weeks are fulfilled locally. All locations have been selected and approved to meet the education department standards as well as state teacher licensure requirements.
