All early childhood education majors are required to complete diverse field-based experiences. At Winthrop, these experiences are comprised of two components. The first places students in appropriate-level classrooms two days per week, over a 14-week period, in observation and tutorial roles. The second consists of 60 full days of internship under the guidance of a master classroom teacher. Other courses also require additional field experiences. Internship sites are located in Rock Hill and neighboring school districts.
