Professional Development in Education

The Office of Professional Development in Education supports school districts and agencies by offering efficient and effective graduate professional development opportunities for educators.  

What We Do

The Office of Professional Development in Education (OPDE) provides graduate professional development courses in collaboration with schools, districts, and other agencies that offer professional development experiences for educators. We work with practitioners to design quality, rigorous graduate-level professional development courses, meeting the academic standards of the College of Charleston while addressing the needs of today’s professional educators.  

OPDE also offers cohort programs that lead to certification and/or endorsement in areas of critical need. All cohort courses are catalog courses that can count toward an advanced degree in your field of interest.
