Hear from a student in the first class of Clemson’s teacher residency program


Hear from Mia Bowman, one of the first students in Clemson’s College of Education to take part in its new teacher residency program. The teacher residency program is a research-based method to increase teacher retention and preparedness as well as student achievement. At the heart of the residency program is the college’s combined degree option for undergraduate education students. This degree option replaces student teaching in a student’s final undergraduate semester with graduate education classes, and the following year is comprised of a year-round teacher residency. The residency program will see its graduates emerge after five years with both a bachelor’s and master’s degree in education as well as an extended, year-long student teaching experience.
