Are you ready to make your impact?

Transform your passion into a rewarding, meaningful career at Alliant International University.

Student Teaching

Standard Intern Teaching

With this option, students complete a 16-week, unpaid student teaching placement in at least two grade levels under the guidance of a Master Teacher and Field Supervisor. This path is perfect for studying pedagogy and classroom application before starting your career as a full-time teacher-of-record.

The intern teaching option lets you pursue your teaching credential online while earning an income intern teaching in California. You’ll be a salaried teacher-of-record for four terms, meaning you assume immediate and full teaching responsibility and management of the classroom. This option works best for those coming into the program with more classroom experience.

Early Completion Intern Teaching Option

Simply put, the Early Completion Option is an abbreviated version of the Standard Intern Teaching path. You are a salaried teacher-of-record for four terms, but your program coursework is accelerated. For this option, we highly recommend you have previous classroom experience.

Prepare yourself to make your impact.

“I deliberately chose CSPP because it is a professional school, I knew I wanted to be a practitioner, and I went to Alliant for that unique model. The school provided a good balance for making you a good consumer of data and science, yet also preparing you to work as a professional.”
