About the Department

Within the Department of Teacher Education, we consider the study of teaching education as essential components of any education. With the need for improved student performance, the shortage of teachers and our nation’s focus on educational issues, these are exciting and challenging times in teacher education. College of Charleston education majors become leaders in the profession under the guidance of a diverse, talented and experienced faculty. Our graduates embark upon rewarding teaching careers where they make a difference in the lives of others.  

  • You can teach. The state of South Carolina has reciprocity agreements with many states, so your horizons are unlimited. 
  • Our graduates are actively recruited by districts within the state as well as by those in surrounding states.
  • Your degree and certification can also be a solid steppingstone to careers in education administration, or other areas of education

“The education program at the College of Charleston does an excellent job of exposing teacher candidates to the realities of teaching and providing them with an insider’s view of the profession. I graduated feeling confident and ready to teach in any classroom.”
