Department of Teacher Education

The Department of Teacher Education offers the opportunity for students to prepare for exciting and rewarding careers in the field of education. Programs are designed to meet the educational needs of individuals from a variety of backgrounds who wish to obtain initial or advanced teacher certification. Prospective and in-service teachers engage in an in-depth study of teaching and learning while enriching their own knowledge in one or more content areas. Courses are delivered using traditional methods and modern technologies, including online, distance learning and web-enhanced instruction. Students in teacher education programs also have multiple opportunities to apply their knowledge and skills as they work in a variety of grades P-12 school settings.

All programs are approved by the Georgia Professional Standards Commission and accredited by the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (now Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation).
