Winthrop Professional Development Coursework   

Winthrop University offers Professional Development (WPDC) coursework for professional development for school personnel in South Carolina Districts.  The WPDC guidelines are based on the South Carolina Commission on Higher Education (CHE) Guidelines for Graduate Courses Offered for Professional Development of School Personnel.  The purpose of the WPDC program is to work collaboratively with school districts and agencies to offer graduate credit for professional development on contemporary topics that meet the targeted needs of groups of in-service teachers and other school personnel at a reduced cost.  WPDC offerings do not duplicate regular Winthrop graduate offerings.  The courses generally are delivered off-site by the sponsoring school district or agency. 


For complete information on WPDC policies and credit, please visit the Policy Repository.
