Become a leader in mathematics education in grades prekindergarten through eighth grade with our EdS in Educational Specialist program.
We designed this program for experienced math teachers who hold a master's degree and T-5 certification in elementary or middle school. You will deepen your subject knowledge while learning new teaching methods and completing an applied project. K-5 teachers will have the option of earning the K-5 mathematics endorsement.
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.
Most graduate students at UGA are not assigned to a faculty advisor until after admittance. A close working relationship with your advisor is paramount to progressing through your program of study.
Alumni of this program have gone on to win instructional and technology grants, make presentations to the Georgia Council of Teachers of Mathematics, and work with the Georgia Department of Education on math education frameworks and tasks.
Gain knowledge and build relationships with teachers across the state while continuing your own teaching career through our hybrid program designed for working professionals.
