It helps to have an edge. And while Cedarville University students receive world-class instruction from their professors as they prepare to pursue careers in their chosen fields, the wise collegian knows that a degree and a good GPA simply aren't enough in an increasingly competitive job market. To succeed, they need real life, hands-on experience. That is why the teacher candidates will graduate from the Cedarville University School of Education with more than 780 hours in field and internship school experiences!
