Thank you for your interest in Georgia State University’s College of Education & Human Development. Our college has more than 60 degree programs at the undergraduate, master’s, specialist and doctoral level. Our programs are offered in various in-person, online and hybrid formats and are designed for individuals interested in the teaching and human service professions.
As part of an urban research university, our faculty, students and faculty conduct research that addresses challenges found in classrooms, clinical settings and communities — particularly those challenges that stem from intergenerational poverty. We also strive to find solutions that promote social justice and equity in educational and human service settings.
Our college is home to several research centers that study a wide range of topics, including social justice as an outcome of education; school safety; adult literacy; multilingual education; stress, trauma and resilience; movement and rehabilitation; and sport and urban policy. We engage in outreach activities through our Alonzo A. Crim Center for Urban Educational Excellence, the Principals Center and After-School All-Stars, which work with school systems and community organizations to increase student achievement and support school leaders.
We invite you to contact us to discuss how our college can help you achieve your professional goals. We welcome you to join our community as we engage in efforts to move lives forward.
