Field Placement &
Partnership Outreach

The Office of Field Placement oversees all of the field experiences for teacher education candidates in programs leading to endorsement from Boston College and licensure in Massachusetts. The team endeavors to provide teacher candidates with access to high-quality mentoring and support along the pathway to endorsement. The administrative team actively partners with the Office of Undergraduate Programs and Students, Office of Graduate Student Services, and the Department of Teaching, Curriculum and Society to ensure that candidates are well supported and advised throughout the educational experience.

The Office of Field Placement welcomes the opportunity to partner with candidates and is happy to schedule individual appointments via Zoom to discuss employment, field placements, concerns about current placements and future experiences.
