Field Experience

Welcome to the Education Preparation Program Field Experience web site for the College of Education and Professional Studies. Please explore this site for current information about early field experiences. This web site was developed to provide you with an overview of the requirements and expectations for the field experiences you will complete. When you have questions, this is the first place to seek an answer. Your second source of information is Tari Larsonmail at 715-425-3976. If your question is particularly unusual, they may ask you to e-mail your question to me, or to make an appointment.


The Field Experience Program provides a variety of high quality placements in rural, suburban, and urban schools, usually within about 50 miles of River Falls. These placements are connected to specific courses and play a vital role in your development as a professional educator.

Because of the quality of our programs and our students, many schools in Wisconsin and Minnesota welcome the opportunity to provide us with field experience and student teaching placements. I hope you will make the most of these opportunities.
