The English Education program provides initial teacher certification. This is for those interested in teaching secondary English language arts (grades 6-12).

The program believes in collaborative creation of knowledge. Which suggests that human beings interact with each other through their environment.

This program is a cohort program. It encourages and supports planning, teaching and reflection with colleagues.

We focus on a commitment to excellence in urban English education.

All initial teacher preparation program candidates must pass a state mandated teacher performance assessment, the edTPA, at the end of their programs in order to become certified in Georgia. The teacher performance assessment is designed to measure a candidate’s ability to help all students learn. Teacher candidates are required to demonstrate knowledge and skills in planning, teaching, assessing and analyzing student learning. Please see as follows the number of teacher candidates who passed the edTPA out of the total number of candidates who successfully submitted the edTPA in the program, subject-specific area.
