Charles LoveOn behalf of our faculty, staff and students, I would like to welcome you to the nationally accredited School of Education at USC Upstate. We have a three-fold mission: to prepare effective teachers who are reflective practitioners and professionals; to serve the needs of the schools in the state of South Carolina, particularly the Upstate, by working collaboratively with P-12 school personnel and to advance the understanding of how teaching and learning occur effectively. 

I invite you to read about our undergraduate degree and graduate degree programs. Our programs prepare teachers for state licensure through the South Carolina State Department of Education. We are fortunate and proud to partner with our local school districts to prepare teachers in best practices that work in real-world classrooms. One of the strongest indicators of the quality of our programs comes from the high volume of requests for our graduates that we receive from school districts.

Our distinguished faculty have expert knowledge and experience in their disciplines, and they are dedicated to preparing students to help children with diverse learning needs. What cannot be captured in writing is the quality of positive interactions between students and faculty that characterizes this School. For that experience, I encourage you to visit us—to meet students and faculty to see how we can fulfill your professional aspirations.

I look forward to seeing you at USC Upstate and sharing in your success.
