The Office of Field and Clinical Experiences

Welcome to the Office of Field and Clinical Experiences!

The mission of the Office of Field and Clinical Experiences is to prepare highly qualified professionals who exhibit the skills and dispositions necessary to be positive, industrious educators.

High quality field and clinical experiences are essential to a student's success as a teacher. Internships that provide a host of diverse, real-world experiences and are developmentally aligned to the student's program of study are integral to the philosophy of Winthrop University.

The goal of the Office of Field and Clinical Experiences is to support each student in attaining the competencies required to both enter their chosen profession and to grow professionally throughout their career. University faculty, supervisors, and host teachers utilize their expertise and engage with students through a variety of strategies and resources. Rigorous content and field assessments verify that our students are performing to Winthrop University's high expectations.

The Office of Field and Clinical Experiences has an open-door policy as we strive to meet the needs of our students, faculty, and partnering teachers.  Please feel free to visit with us at any time in Withers 143.
