USC-Upstate announces plans for Greenville operations

GREENVILLE, S.C. — The University of South Carolina Upstate says it will create an undergraduate urban studies degree in Greenville that will serve, in part, as a feeder for Clemson University’s master’s program.

USC Upstate announced details of its expansion into Greenville on Monday.

USC Upstate Chancellor Tom Moore says the move to downtown Greenville offers a unique opportunity for the school once known as USC-Spartanburg.

Moore says the school is leasing more than 5,000 square feet in an office building that should be ready by August.

The new location will not take any resources from the current degree program at a center southeast of the downtown area at the old McAlister Square shopping mall.

Moore points out that the school is also setting up an addition in downtown Spartanburg.
