If you are interested in being a part of your community as a teacher, teacher leader, or researcher, study with the Department of Educational Theory and Practice. We are home to initial certification programs at the bachelor's and master's levels in:

  • Early childhood education
  • Middle grades education
  • Secondary social studies education

We also provide continuing education for these areas through master of education and educational specialist degrees, as well as a doctoral program in educational theory and practice.

Faculty and students work with projects that integrate research, teaching, and service through community engagement. Local projects include:

  • Professional Development School partnership with the Clarke County School District
  • Science education professional development projects with surrounding school districts
  • Social studies education partnership with the Cobb House museum
  • Collaboration with homeschooling families
  • Neighborhood-based education center emphasizing creativity and critical literacies

Our faculty are highly productive, award-winning researchers and teachers. Our grant-funded projects expand knowledge around issues in teaching, learning, and learning to teach in varied contexts. Our faculty regularly publish in top-tier peer-reviewed journals and newspapers, and present at workshops.
