Belmont University’s Department of Education believes that authentic engagement in the field of practice is an essential part of becoming an effective educator. With this commitment every education course at Belmont will either be embedded in a school setting or have a direct field experience related to the content covered. As a result the Belmont teacher candidate will have had exposure to public, private, and charter schools prior to their final clinical practice experience which provides them the skills to become tomorrow’s educational LEADERS.
