Clinical Experiences

Students in the Educational Leadership – SBL/SDL (MSEd) – Administration Supervision (AdSup) Track complete 600 hours of field work/internship hours across three components.

Component 1

All classes within the Leadership program include fieldwork experiences as a requirement of the course. 200 of the fieldwork/internship hours will be completed during your first seven classes.

Component 2

During your first three semesters, all students will conduct 200 hours of fieldwork experiences either in your place of employment or another school or district site. These are not assigned to a specific class, but to the overall program. These 200 hours will then be added to the 200 hours from the internship seminar class, ADSUP 751.

Component 3

During your final semester, you will enroll in ADSUP 751. In this class you will conduct 200 hours of fieldwork under the guidance of both your class instructor as well as an internship supervisor who will visit you in the field.

Placement for Components 1-3

Students complete all components at their current worksite or a site approved by the Education Leadership program. If placement is required, students will be placed by the Program Coordinator at a Hunter College School of Education partner site.
