Student Success

The School of Education offers advice and resources at every stage of your academic journey, from admissions, through individualized advising, to career services and certification.

We believe that experiential learning is one of the keys to student success. As an SOE student, you have opportunities for local and global hands-on experiences to broaden your perspectives, learn under experts in the field, create strong professional bonds, and prepare for your career.

Experiential Learning Opportunities

Experiential learning—also called immersive or hands-on learning—is a critical element of our academic strategy and embedded into our classes and programs. SOE offers multiple types of experience, including clinical simulations, field experiences, lesson study, practicums, internships, and research opportunities.

Beyond the Syracuse campus, you can strengthen your knowledge and skills with study away and study abroad across the country and around the globe, while creating close personal and professional relationships.
