Overview

Winthrop University offers a Bachelor of Science degree in Early Childhood Education.  The Winthrop University Early Childhood Education Program is designed to provide the teacher candidate with the field and clinical experiences necessary to become a certified teacher in grades Pre-K-3.  In February 2011, our Bachelor of Science in Early Childhood Education program received "National Recognition" by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE).  We have a long history of meeting rigorous NCATE professional standards and pride ourselves in preparing highly qualified early childhood teachers.

Courses leading to the Bachelor of Science in Early Childhood Education provide students with the opportunity to explore current research in the field. The major requires 62 semester hours in the professional education sequence, including approximately 29 semester hours in the core curriculum. Additionally, students analyze and apply new learning and teaching strategies in a variety of field settings including child care centers, Macfeat Early Childhood Laboratory School, and public school classrooms in surrounding areas.

Students pursuing Bachelor of Science degrees in the Richard Riley College of Education at Winthrop University have two options for working with young students: Elementary Education and Early Childhood Education. Both fields incorporate a research-based curriculum with practical, real world classroom experiences in the area elementary schools. The conceptual framework provides an infrastructure for preparing Winthrop graduates as teachers and educational leaders in the ever-changing world of education.
