Clinical Practice

Clinical Practice is fieldwork experiences associated with course work for credential programs and courses. The 4 levels of Clinical Practice fieldwork includes; SERVE, Clinical I, II, and III. 

SERVE (Service Experiences for Revitalizing Education)

SERVE is an undergraduate requirement which includes courses such as; EDEL 200 and EDEL 300. SERVE Students are required to participate in 40-45 hours of fieldwork.

The SERVE (Service Experiences for ReVitalizing Education) Program creates an opportunity for students at the undergraduate level, in particular for those who are considering careers in K-12 education, to learn about the realities of urban classrooms and the needs of the diverse K-12 student population. SERVE students work with students individually and in small groups to provide academic support and encourage personal growth. It is through this involvement that CSULB students assess their careers goals and provide direct service to students and teachers in grades K-12 and their communities.
