Students pursuing a teaching license are placed in two, 15-week student teaching placements their final year at Linfield. Student teachers are paired with a PreK-12 mentor teacher and a college supervisor.
Alternatively, students can intern for credit by enrolling in IDST 287: Career Exploration Internship offered through the Office for Career Development. To be eligible, students must be in good academic standing (2.5+ GPA).
Students are also free to intern on their own, without academic credit.
Besides doing an internship, students can work for various departments on campus:
“I spent time working in the International Programs Office as a student assistant and for the Theatre and Communications Art department as a publicity assistant.”
