As the birthplace of public higher education, the University of Georgia has a long and distinguished history in the development and dissemination of the nation's intellectual, cultural and environmental heritage.

The College of Education, founded in 1908, has an integral part of that history. This excellence continues today, as the College is perennially ranked among the nation's top research-intensive institutes and continues to be a center for innovative research, teaching and service projects of local, national and international interest.

One of the largest and most diverse public colleges of education, the College offers more than a dozen undergraduate majors and approximately 90 graduate programs leading to careers as educators, counselors, psychologists, administrators, researchers, educational and health-related specialists.
