Beyond the Classroom

A major component of any education degree program is classroom practicum. Ambrose partners with Calgary and area school districts to place you in classrooms so you can start applying your learning and developing your teaching skills from as early as your second semester. You’ll spend your third semester almost entirely in the classroom, and, in your final semester, you’ll have the chance to review and analyze what you learned through that experience.
