Internship & Career Opportunities

The Castleton Education Department presents students with extensive opportunities to gain experience in the field through partnerships with local schools. Across all areas of concentrations there are classes which require work in the field as a component to the course. From special education to mathematics, students will acquire knowledge through valuable hands-on experiences. Additionally, the department dedicates all senior level courses to a professional year frame setting. This requires students to fulfill two consecutive semesters within a classroom setting.

Upon graduation the opportunities to utilize a Castleton education degree only expand. Many of our graduates remain in local Vermont schools and mentor current Castleton pre-service teachers in their K-12 classrooms. Some out-of-state students return to their home states to become classroom teachers. Others fulfill support positions as paraprofessionals and/or coaches.

Castleton's Education Department prepares its students not only to directly enter the professional world, but also to continue on to further their degrees. Some attend graduate school programs inside and outside of Castleton's program to major in education or their liberal arts interests while others pursue counseling degrees. There are a myriad of opportunities available to graduates in the field of education.
