Teacher Education Program - Greenville Campus

charles.j.09Thank you for your interest in the University of South Carolina Upstate Teacher Education programs offered at the University Center Greenville (UCG). We invite you to become a teacher candidate in one of our nationally-accredited programs.

Teacher education courses offered at UCG are at the junior and senior level. The programs are designed for those individuals with 30 or more hours of college credit, or for students who may have completed an associate's degree and would like to transfer those credits toward a bachelor's degree. We have a 2+2 agreement with Greenville Technical College (and other technical/community colleges in the region). Additionally, the USC Upstate School of Education now offers graduate degree programs at UCG via distance education technologies.  

Students who already have a bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution of higher education may pursue teacher certification through a second baccalaureate degree from the USC Upstate School of Education. Under unique circumstances, a student may be classified as “certification only” and complete the requirements for certification without receiving a second degree. 

Teacher Education Programs at the Greenville Campus:  

  • Early Childhood Education 
  • Elementary Education 
  • Middle Level Education    
  • Masters in Education in Early Childhood and Elementary Education
  • Masters in Education in Special Education: Visual Impairment
