Fieldwork Opportunities

The LSEE program offers four professional fieldwork opportunities. This relevant and valuable experience working with elementary age-children gives LSEE students the much needed in-classroom experience to help them become excellent educators.

HSU’s fieldwork program is unique from other programs for two main reasons. First, it is one of the first fieldwork programs in the country that allows for a deep connection between teacher preparation courses at the university and what is being taught in the schools.

HSU’s fieldwork opportunities are unique because Humboldt County schools offer future teachers the opportunity to be in classrooms with students from diverse socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds, including Hmong, Latino, and American Indian. In the sequenced fieldwork and seminar experiences, students will learn essential observation techniques as well as having hands-on experiences working with children.
