About

Our innovative teacher preparation programs respond to state needs and contribute to the learning and achievement of Georgia’s increasingly diverse public school population. The responsibility for teacher education is shared by faculty in the College of the Arts, Bagwell College of Education, the College of Humanities and Social Sciences, the College of Science and Mathematics, and the Graduate College, in collaboration with master teachers and administrators in local schools.

Course work emphasizes scholarly rigor through research-based practices and engagement in a variety of field-based projects as well as supervised clinical experiences. Technology and multicultural considerations are infused throughout the programs. This master's degree leads to initial certification and is not appropriate for teachers who already hold clear, renewable certificates.
