BSEd in English Education / MEd in English Education
Extend your teaching skills in English and language arts with an immersive Double Dawgs pathway that combines initial teacher preparation with a year of graduate study and mentorship in your first year as a teacher.
Graduates of this Double Dawgs program have the advantage of a year-long student-teaching placement in addition to coursework in English education that focuses on reflective practices and instructional leadership. And because your graduate-level courses are online, you may begin teaching after receiving your bachelor’s degree while continuing to work on your master’s—and become eligible for a stepped pay increase with the advanced degree.
- Learn the latest techniques from master teachers and faculty as part of your bachelor’s coursework, plus gain experience through a yearlong practicum
- Begin teaching after receiving a bachelor’s while taking your master’s coursework online
- Become eligible for a T-5 certification level (master’s-level salary)
- With a high demand for teachers across Georgia and across the country, many graduates can work in their choice of school
