Field Experience

Learn about opportunities for field experience in centers and classrooms.

Child Development students observe and work regularly with children in schools and child development centers. Each course requires some type of field experience.

During the senior year, Child Development majors complete 320 hours at an approved placement site. The experience includes documentation of log hours, completion of lesson plans, individual child observations, responses to professional questions, daily journal reflections, list of curriculum ideas and student/supervisor evaluations.

At the completion of hours, the student is also required to meet with the Child Development faculty and submit a final report analyzing the experience and career relevance.

Students pursuing early childhood teacher certification endorsement are only required to complete 160 hours.
