International Teaching Internships
The University of Arkansas launched the addition of international teaching internship opportunities in spring 2014. Students in the secondary education M.A.T., childhood education M.A.T., elementary education, and art education programs have the opportunity to have an experience somewhere outside of Northwest Arkansas for the last few weeks of their student teaching year.
International student teaching sites are currently in Lima, Peru, at the Peruvian North American Abraham Lincoln School and in Jönköping, Sweden, in conjunction with Jönköping University. Students placed in Peru live with host families from the school community, and students placed in Sweden live in the international dorms on or near campus.
We plan to expand this opportunity to more teacher education programs and to add new sites as the program grows. Please contact Jake Ayo at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions about this exciting endeavor!
