January 27, 2020 - Nine King’s College Education Studies majors are currently interning with local early learning facilities.

The Internship is a seven-credit class that is required by King’s College to complete the educational studies degree.  Each student is placed in an area Early Learning Center for 20 hours per week for the 16-week semester.  Students completing the educational studies degree have been trained to work with early learners and in fields associated with education outside the traditional classroom setting.  Upon completion of the degree, students, after suitable employment, will be eligible to earn their Director’s Credential or to apply for a Private Academic Teaching Credential in Pennsylvania.
