Department of Education students immerse themselves in the D.C. education community through field experiences. When studying at Catholic University, our students develop teaching skills and critical, reflective minds in a real teacher student environment. Students become a part of the local community by working in D.C. area schools, where they develop the professional skills needed for state llicensure. They will become familiar with the city's educational system as well as its residents.

Washington, D.C., is also where national education policy is made. Students have the opportunity to intern at the U.S. Department of Education or other nonprofits devoted to education to witness how this policy is made firsthand.
