The College of Education is located in the Olympia Lowe Education Complex. Courses are offered at the two off-campus locations at the Greenwood Center and the Greenville Higher Education Center.
At the undergraduate level, the College of Professional Students/Education offers a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education, Early Childhood Education, and Health, Physical Education and Recreation (HPER). The Early Childhood Education major is not designed for school-based early childhood education, and does not currently lead to licensure.
Through the coordination by the Department of Education, the College of Professional Studies/Education also oversees the B.S. degree in Biology Education, English Education, Mathematics Education, Vocal Keyboard and Instrumental Music Education, and Social Science Education. These programs, all located in the College of Arts and Sciences, lead to K-12 licensure in Music Education, and 7-12 licensures in all other areas.
