As a Middle School Teacher Education student, you have the opportunity to study in one of UNESCO's seven Cities of Literature at the Champlain Abroad Dublin campus, a great option for those seeking a concentration in English and Language Arts.
Students in the Middle School Teacher Education major are able to work in Dublin schools if they choose the Study Abroad option at Champlain Dublin. Education, Psychology and Social Work students enrolled in the Service Learning course in Dublin have opportunities to work in elementary and secondary schools and social service agencies serving individuals and families.
These experiences abroad extend students' understanding of education and social service programs from the "Irish perspective." Students are able to add this important experience to their professional resumes.
In the extensive research Champlain has conducted over many years with the business community and public-sector organizations, "Global Appreciation" has emerged as an essential competency employers seek in their employees.
Champlain has taken a highly proactive position on cultivating this competency by ensuring that the College has embedded pioneering international learning across the curriculum.
Additionally, Champlain expects every student to engage in a study-abroad experience, and has designed the curriculum of our majors to support a semester of international study. What does this mean to you? You can study in another country, and even take an internship, and still graduate on time.
Experiences living in another country will make your more culturally sensitive, both personally and professionally, and give you a better grasp of the international policies, complexities and power of other cultural narratives.
