For the BSEd in English Education
Applications to the BSEd in English Education are due the third Friday in August, and will be evaluated by a committee of program faculty members. Although the program has minimum requirements (e.g., 2.5 undergraduate GPA, 50 hours of experiences with learners), most applicants greatly exceed the minimum. Those candidates whose grades do not represent their future potential should use the essay portions of the application to make their case for admission.
Prior to admission, applicants should have consulted with the English education advisor in Student Services, 122 Aderhold Hall, Athens GA 30602. Advisors can counsel applicants in how to arrange their programs of study prior to application so that they are positioned for enrollment.
The program enrolls a maximum of 25 students each year, and in most years is highly competitive. Applicants should thus take the greatest care possible in meeting or exceeding the stated minimum requirements and preparing their applications to best represent their cases for admission.
