At Tusculum College, the education students are required to do 120 hours of what is called practicum. During practicum, students have to observe teachers and their classrooms for at least 18 hours a class. This has helped prepare me and accept what is coming in my future career. Tusculum has an appropriate workload for their education students as well including making lesson plans, writing essay's on recent topics in education, and letting us be creative when producing our lessons for different grades levels.

Tusculum has a great academics program. They always have tutoring option either with peer tutoring or tutoring from the professor. The professors are knowledgeable about the subject, and willing to work extra with their students. I came to Tusculum College because I heard such great things about their education program. I know that Tusculum has helped me prepare for my future career by having such a strong and supportive academic program.

I'm majoring in Physical Therapy, the interesting thing I have to go through Athletic Training to do that. Which is kind of good because I end up learning two trades in the same field. The department is fun and interactive, you start learning and doing your major your freshmen year. There are different trip opportunities to travel to other areas in the state and out the state to further your knowledge of your major. You learn how to help and prevent injuries in every sport and learn about the body constantly. You have fun with good people while building your career

The way the curriculum is set-up is wonderful, especially if you’re a student-athlete. Although the area the school is placed in is very closed off and rural, this is good because school allows you to focus on one class at a time. For 18 days you are emerged into that one subject and it helps because you can grasp it easier by not having to worry about other classes. Workload can be somewhat difficult, but you just keep reminding yourself that it’s only 18 days. Coming from a more urban are it can be a culture shock being there, but the way the school is and the people make up for it.

Tusculum boasts a decorated variety of professors across their selection of majors, and each program is dedicated to the success of its students and of the college as a whole. Tusculum follows the one-class-at-a-time block system, where students focus on one course for 18 class days before switching to the next class. This requires a great deal of time management from the students, though the registration process seems a bit simpler; students merely fill in the blanks. However, a great deal of planning is needed to prevent having to stay over four years (as certain classes are only offered certain blocks). Academic advisers are of great help in this, and as long as the student is responsible, the registration process is easy and the homework manageable. In addition, most classes number around 15 to 17 students, and with only one class to focus on, the professors get to know their students well and are very personable.
