Department of Teacher Education

The Department of Teacher Education is housed in the College of Charleston’s School of Education, Health, and Human Performance. The department provides a strong nationally accredited program that prepares students to meet the educational needs of children and youth in the areas of early childhood, elementary, foreign language, middle level, secondary, and special education.

The curriculum involves coursework on campus as well as field experiences in diverse school settings. The department maintains strong relationships with local school districts and exceeds the state’s minimum field and clinical practice hour requirements.

A degree in education will provide you with the opportunity to make a difference and have a major impact on your community. You will be equipped to become a skilled classroom teacher or to pursue careers outside of the classroom in other areas such as Peace Corps, education administration, social work, or nonprofit organizations.
