Welcome to the School of Education at USC Aiken! We are thrilled that you have chosen to pursue your certification with us and look forward to assisting you in becoming a Dynamic Educator!

Our teacher education programs are fully accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) and prepare teacher candidates for certification through the South Carolina State Department of Education. We are excited to partner with our local school districts to provide rich and diverse experiences for our teacher candidates throughout the program. In addition to the plentiful opportunities to get involved on campus, education majors can be invited to be a member of the Kappa Delta Pi International Education Honor Society. We are also proud to be one of only 12 institutions to host the Teaching Fellows scholarship program.

Our teacher education faculty in the School of Education challenge candidates to acquire and develop the knowledge, skills, and dispositions necessary to become successful Dynamic Educators who can plan, instruct, manage, communicate, and grow professionally. Our distinguished, award winning faculty are knowledgeable and experienced in their disciplines and strive to prepare our candidates to meet the needs of ALL children.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if I can assist you in any way.

I look forward to seeing you at USC Aiken and wish you the best.
