English/English Education - A.B., B.S.Ed.

About this Degree

The program in English Education certifies teacher candidates at both the undergraduate and master’s degree levels; provides programs of study for master’s degree students; and supervises research at the specialist and doctoral levels. Faculty members integrate teaching, research, and service to cultivate theoretically sound and practically applicable knowledge in each student’s degree program.

The TESOL & World Language Education Program offers a B.S.Ed. at the undergraduate level. The B.S.Ed. program prepares students to teach modern, classical, and Less Commonly Taught Languages in pre-school through 12th grade. Students earn T-4 (initial) certification to teach in Georgia public schools.

What you will learn

Teacher candidates will have a year-long field experience in a secondary school at the high school or middle school level. Placements for full-time student teaching in the spring can be in either a middle or high school setting, though most are in high schools due to a limited number of middle school placements and the past preferences of teacher candidates. Students are encouraged to visit both middle and high school classrooms before they enter the program to learn which they prefer. An experience in both setting will help teacher candidates decide whether they favor teaching early adolescents (middle school) or young adults (high school).
