Happy children

Is an M.Ed. in Urban Education Right For You?

It’s a known fact that children living in low-income and impoverished neighborhoods don’t receive a high quality education. What’s even more devastating is the rate at which teachers in high needs public schools leave the profession after a few years.

The Urban Accelerated Certification & Master’s Program (UACM) – located in the College of Education and Human Development at Georgia State University – is in the heart of downtown Atlanta and offers students the opportunity to fill this growing gap by preparing you to earn a master’s of education.
