The teaching profession conjures up different images for different people. One person may picture helping little children cut and paste or learn to count, while another may picture explaining complex physics problems to teenagers. Yet another may see themselves explaining major events in national history to middle schoolers. The truth is that teaching can span a variety of subjects and age ranges.

The question is - What do YOU want to teach?

Internship II

Students must fill out the required application forms for admission to the Teacher Education Program at least one semester in advance of the Internship II semester. To be admitted, students must:

  • Be recommended by an academic advisor.
  • Have a cumulative GPA of 2.7 on a 4.0 scale as well as a GPA of 2.7 in their major field of study.
  • Make a grade of "C" or higher in the education prefix courses.
  • Complete the prerequisites for Internship II.
  • Have on file in the office of the School of Education an approved curriculum plan.
  • Complete all Arkansas requirements for the area in which they will teach.

The Harding University Catalog contains other information relevant to this program.

NOTE: Since Internship II sites are more readily available in the fall, students may wish to choose an alternate four-year program which advisors can provide.

The Cannon-Clary College of Education welcomes you to the Internship II experience. We are proud of our cooperating schools, our cooperating teachers, and the experiences that are provided for you in the Teacher Education Program. But most of all we are proud of you and your accomplishments. Internship II is one of the most important and profitable experiences in your professional preparation. It is a time for demonstrating the skills that you have gained during your time here on campus; but most importantly, it is the time when you begin the process of moving from candidate status to professional educator. This guided experience is planned for your optimal professional growth.

Internship II lasts 18 weeks and requires a full time commitment from the candidate. To be admitted to the Internship II semester, a teacher candidate must meet certain requirements.
