Education

Through our extensive partnerships with school districts in surrounding communities, Adelphi University offers teaching candidates a range of opportunities to hone their teaching skills, meet program requirements, or receive paid graduate internships.

Adelphi offers placements in over 20 school districts throughout the metropolitan area. All field experiences are carefully supervised to make sure that candidates develop and demonstrate the knowledge, skills, and dispositions necessary to help all students learn. Teacher candidates must have diverse fieldwork experiences, including at least one placement at a high-needs site within our existing partnerships.
