Careers and Internships


Clarion University has agreements for the Student Teaching semester with 70 school districts in western Pennsylvania as well as one district in Florida and international student teaching possibilities.  More information about field experiences, required certification tests and clearances as well as student teaching may be found by visiting the Office of Field Services.

While the majority of Clarion education graduates find employment within the Commonwealth, the high standards required to earn a PA teaching certification make it highly portable to other states.

The skills and knowledge integrated into the Secondary Education Social Studies program also prepare graduates to move into fields which combine history/geography knowledge, leadership, interpersonal and organizational skills. For example, alumni have successfully entered the workforce as corporate trainers, local museum consultants, writers and documentarians.   They are also well prepared for graduate study in history or education.
