Evening Pond and Fountain

Evening Program in Elementary Education

In the summer of 2006, USC Upstate began a new initiative called the Teacher Assistant Merged Program and 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 his/her daytime job. The program has a dual path – first, an individual who currently holds a bachelor’s degree, but not in education, may earn certification, and secondly, 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 3 classes over the summer. The classes are being offered at the University Center in Greenville, at the USC Upstate Campus in Spartanburg, and at the USC Sumter campus in the evenings to accommodate individuals who are working during the day. This part time program can be completed in three years.
