Our early childhood education major prepares students to meet eligibility requirements for teacher licensure in early childhood Students from the College of Arts and Sciences study in Trinity sweatshirtseducation (ages 3-8) in the District of Columbia. Once licensed, candidates may apply for reciprocity in other jurisdictions.

You will complete field-based experiences during your first and second years of study, two semesters of a practicum during your junior year (four hours/week), and a final semester in a school setting for the student teaching internship (full-time).  Student teaching internships are in public, charter, and private school systems in the Washington metropolitan area, and placements are made by the university.
