The University of South Carolina Upstate has been recognized as a top college for teacher education, ranking No. 7 out of 25. The Online College Database’s new ranking, “Top Colleges in South Carolina Shaping the Next Generation,” honors the post-secondary institutions in the state that graduated the most education and teaching professionals in 2012.
The College Database used the following methodology to identify the top colleges shaping the next generation: must be fully accredited, four-year colleges only, public or private colleges only, no for-profit schools, U.S. colleges only, and minimum of 10 grads from education or teaching programs in 2012.
The College Database is a not-for-profit organization whose goal is to provide free information about education options both nationally and locally to students, parents and other interested parties. The goal is accomplished by making all information and tools on the site free and easy to access. While still a relatively young company, The College Database has become a leader in providing educational information to libraries, high schools and career centers across the country.
