Dual Language and Immersion Education

In response to the growing number of Georgia schools with Dual Language Immersion programs, the College of Education & Human Development’s Department of Early Childhood and Elementary Education offers two programs in Dual Language Immersion Education.

These programs engage students in comprehensive exploration, research and practice in elementary Dual Language Immersion education.

These programs develop highly prepared teachers who understand Dual Language Immersion education and are teacher-leaders in establishing learner-centered classrooms consistent with the standards of the Georgia Professional Standards Commission and the Interstate Teacher Assessment and Support Consortium.

The two programs are:

Master of Education in Elementary Education with a concentration in Dual Language Education
Dual Immersion Early Childhood Education Endorsement
