Education Special Opportunities
We offer a number of exciting opportunities for those interested in exploring education. Here are just a few.
Travel & Teach
Hartwick education students have used Emerson Scholarships to travel and teach across the world. Our students have interned in schools in Ecuador, Russia, Guatemala, Peru, Ghana and Ireland.
J Term Mini-Practicum
Our Mini-Practicum is a unique one-month program completed in the sophomore or junior year that immerses students in alternative educational settings locally at Job Corps, BOCES and the Springbrook School and internationally during January Term in Vietnam, Great Britain and Ghana.
Through the partnership with Springbook, Hartwick has placed 10-15 students at the special education school, providing quality placement experiences in a special-needs setting for our student-teachers' mini-practicum.
Education Student Activities
The Society for the Education and Enrichment of Children, our very active education club, provides students with a wide array of opportunities to get involved in the community and local schools, engage in activism around educational policy issues and support our sister school, the Pathfinder International School, in Asebu, Ghana.
