Thank you for your interest in Georgia State University’s College of Education & Human Development. Our college has more than 50 degree programs at the undergraduate, master’s, specialist and doctoral levels offered in various in-person, hybrid and online formats. Our programs are designed for individuals who are interested in the teaching and human service professions.
As part of an urban research university, our students and faculty conduct research that addresses challenges found in classrooms, clinics and community institutions. We are home to two national research centers – the Center for Literacy and Deafness, the Center for the Study of Adult Literacy – and a National Learning Disabilities Innovation Hub focused on learning disabilities among African-American children in first through fifth grades. Our college also has research centers that study school safety, pediatric locomotion, children in urban settings, transnational and multilingual education, and stress, trauma and resilience.
We engage in outreach activities through the Urban Literacy Collaborative and Clinic, After-School All-Stars Atlanta, the Principals Center, Saturday School for Scholars and Leaders and the Alonzo A. Crim Center for Urban Educational Excellence, each of which work with school systems and community organizations to increase student achievement.
We invite you to contact us to discuss how the College of Education & Human Development will help you achieve your professional goals. We welcome you to join our community as we engage in efforts to move lives forward.
