Field Experience Program

Field Experience Program

Welcome to the Field Experience Program (FEP) at the Harvard Graduate School of Education.

The Field Experience Program (FEP) is an internship for credit course open to all students at HGSE. This custom-designed course listed as S997 provides the opportunity for current students to become more reflective practitioners, apply course work to practice, do research, develop new skills, and explore different kinds of work.

This course also has a unique partnership with the Career Services Office (CSO) to help connect students and internship sites.  Internship sites range from schools, colleges, labs, research organizations, public agencies, museums, private corporations, non-profit organizations as well as other professional settings related to their academic studies.

The supervision provided by the FEP Mentor (internship supervisor) is one of the most important features of this program. HGSE students find FEP internships so valuable because of the leadership of their mentors, including their active oversight of internship assignments and genuine interest in supporting their career growth.

For Students: Important information for all students considering enrolling in S997 (the FEP).
For Employers/FEP Mentors: Information on how to post an internship opportunity along with details about timing, expectations and contact information.
