Thank you for your interest in Georgia State University and in particular the programs and professionals of the College of Education. We are a large, diverse, skilled and committed community of scholars and practitioners who ascribe to the highest standards of our disciplines.
The college has more than 3,500 students enrolled in more than 50 degree programs, offered in six academic departments. Instruction is offered from morning to night, in person and online, and various combinations of both.
We offer a wide range of degree programs at the undergraduate, masters, specialist and doctoral levels designed for practitioners and researchers. Our programs include teaching content in high need areas in Georgia schools and nationally, such as mathematics; science; early childhood education; instructing students with disabilities; school leadership; and professional programs for counselors, psychologists, behavior analysts and health and exercise professionals.
As part of a leading urban research university, members of the College of Education engage in a wide range of research to generate new knowledge about teaching, apply theories to the everyday practice of instruction, and develop, evaluate and critique educational policy.
Several of our research projects concern the quality of instruction and evaluation in the STEM content areas, language and literacy development, and instruction for English learners and adult learners. Other research projects focus on literacy curriculum development for initial readers, students who are deaf and hard of hearing and students with severe disabilities, and social issues such as bullying in schools.
As partners and participants of Georgia and Atlanta, we engage in service activities such as the Urban Literacy Clinic, the Principals’ Center, Atlanta After-School All-Stars, Saturday School and the various programs of the Alonzo A. Crim Center for Urban Educational Excellence, which works with school systems, parents, students and community organizations to increase efforts toward life-long learning.
We invite you to contact us to discuss how these opportunities in the College of Education will help you achieve your professional goals. We welcome you to join our community as we engage in efforts to move lives forward.
