The School of Education at USC Upstate is proud to offer the only Master of Arts in Teaching in Special Education – Visual Impairment Education Program in South Carolina. This program is designed for individuals who are seeking initial licensure in visual impairment. With 50 percent of current teachers of students with visual
impairment expected to retire within the next three to five years, it is a perfect time to consider becoming a teacher of students with visual impairments.
The Master of Arts in Teaching in Special Education – Visual Impairment Education Program is shaped and aligned with the School of Education's goals and the standards set by the Council for Exceptional Children. The SC Department of Education requirements
for licensure in visual impairment have also been embedded into the program. The two-year program offers live classes at the South Carolina School for the Deaf and the Blind in the summer and distance learning classes in the fall and spring. Although the course of study has been designed for part-time students,
students may elect to be full-time students and complete the program in less than two years.
