In the summer of 2006, USC Upstate began a new initiative called the Teacher Assistant Merged Program, which is now known as the Evening Elementary Program. The purpose of the program is to provide a venue for teacher assistants and career changers to gain certification necessary to teach in public schools while maintaining a daytime job. The program has dual paths. First, an individual who currently holds a bachelor’s degree, but not in education, may earn certification. Second, an individual who has significant coursework towards a degree may earn a Bachelor of Science degree in teaching.
Candidates will take two or three courses each fall and spring and be enrolled in at least three classes over the summer. The classes are being offered in the evenings to accommodate individuals who are working during the day at the University Center in Greenville, the USC Upstate Campus in Spartanburg and the USC Sumter Campus. This part time program can be completed in three years.
If you are seeking additional information regarding this program, please see the program of study sheets below or contact Dr. Jim Charles at University Center Greenville at 864-552-4227 or email@example.com. If you are in the Sumter area, contact Dr. Nancy Gallenstein at 803-938-3820, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Evening Elementary Program offerings are contingent upon enrollment numbers. Classes with low enrollment are subject to cancellation.
