For generations, the University of South Carolina College of Education has had a profound
impact on students, schools, families and communities in South Carolina.
Be the inspiration.
Educators inspire. Chances are that an educator made a profound impact on your life,
which planted the seed for your desire to make a difference, too! That's why our students
and faculty have created a college environment that fosters collaboration, communication,
critical thinking, creativity and problem solving — arming you with the tools to impact
positive change in the lives around you.
Become a leader.
Our students become teachers, counselors, educational leaders, researchers and policy
makers. The college offers more than 3,000 students — from freshmen to established
education professionals — a wide variety of programs at multiple levels.
And that's not all. Through our partnerships and research initiatives, we are investing
millions of dollars every year into finding new and innovative ways to improve the
quality of education across the state of South Carolina.
See how we are improving our communities.
