Global Student Teaching

Calling all future teachers! Did you know that education majors can complete their student teaching or practicum abroad? The Global Student Teaching program matches students with experienced cooperating teachers in another country for student teaching practicums. There are many positive outcomes that are a direct result of this type of international experience including an in-depth understanding of the teaching profession in a global setting, and the development of skills necessary to live and work in a cultural setting.

Global Student teaching is managed by the University of Minnesota Morris. Minot State partners with the UMN Morris to offer our students this exciting opportunity.
