A Note from the Program

This program is for those seeking secondary teacher certification to teach high school English, mathematics, social studies, or science. The program has two pathways for completion, with one track for current UofSC undergraduate students and another for those who hold or will soon complete a bachelor’s degree outside an education field. For UofSC undergraduate students, the B.A./B.S. plus M.T. is the program to help you reach your goal. For students outside of UofSC or who already have a bachelor’s degree, the Career Changers M.T. is the program for you. 

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
