Our educational assistant program prepares you to work with kindergarten to grade 12s. Learn how to work one-on-one and with small groups. Two exceptionalities courses give you tools to work with children with different abilities. Choose electives to enhance your skills. American Sign Language and animal assisted therapy are two of those options. Put what you learn into work experience. Each semester you’ll have 11 weeks of classes then a 4-week practicum. One of those practicums could be out of the country. We offer international practicums every other year.
Full-time undergraduate and post-graduate international students can work anywhere on or off campus without a work permit. The rules around the number of hours a student will be allowed to work may vary based on the country the student chooses to study in. International students are typically able to work up to 20 hours a week.
