A cohort model with small class sizes, an award-winning faculty, and extensive real-world teaching experience add up to prime preparation for teaching math at the middle and high school level.
Our mathematics education program combines studies in mathematics and the teaching of mathematics along with extensive field experiences to earn certification to teach in Georgia schools.
Feb. 16 (Fall Start), Sept. 22 (Spring Start)
Almost all in-state students begin their studies at UGA paying limited tuition or fees. Please note that these amounts are subject to change and are meant to give prospective students an idea of the costs associated with a degree at the University of Georgia College of Education.
Students may qualify for a variety of assistantships, scholarships, and other financial awards to help offset the cost of tuition, housing, and other expenses.
All undergraduate students at UGA meet with an academic advisor each semester. This meeting is critical to a student's success as a chance to discuss courses and electives, certification criteria, and general graduation requirements.
Gain extensive field experience, culminating in a full-time student teaching position in your final semester.
Connect with other students and math educators through our campus Mathematics Education Student Association, which organizes colloquia and receptions with speakers from across the world, holds book sales, and publishes the Mathematics Educator journal.

The UGA Office of Undergraduate Admissions oversees the application process required for the university. Therefore, a student must be accepted to UGA before entering a College of Education program.
To begin the program in the fall semester, a completed application must be submitted by February 16th. To begin the program in the spring semester, a completed application must be submitted by September 22nd. Admission to the undergraduate Mathematics Education degree program requires the following minimum qualifications:
Students may apply to the program with the requirements above still in progress. However, no student will be admitted until all requirements are completed and appropriate documentation has been received.
Upon meeting these requirements, students will then be ranked using the following formula:
All students meeting these requirements will then be ranked using the following formula: Grade in MATH 2250 + Grade in MATH 2260 + Grade in MATH 3200 + Overall grade point average
A minimum of 9.75 points is required to be considered for admission. Students who have at least 9.75 points will then be rank ordered, and the 25 students having the highest point totals will be admitted to the program each semester.
In the event of a tie, we will admit 26 students. A student who has been admitted for a given semester and is unable to enroll due to an emergency will automatically be allowed into the next cohort s/he is able to join. Students can reapply as many times as they wish.
