Teacher Education

TE graduates

Welcome to the Albany State University's Department of Teacher Education!

The Teacher Education program offers the Bachelor of Science degrees leading to certification in Early Childhood Education, Middle Grades Education, and Secondary Education with concentrations in English Education, Health and Physical Education, Science Education, and Special Education (Adaptive Curriculum). In addition to traditional degree and certification, the program offers a fast track certification only program in a range of teaching fields (excluding Early Childhood Education and Special Education). The Program also offers Master of Education degrees that lead to certificate upgrades in Early Childhood Education, Middle Grades Education, Special Education-General Curriculum, and Secondary Education with concentrations in English, Mathematics, and Science. Additionally, candidates who possess a bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution may also earn T-4 certification only in each of the respective fields. Current in-service teachers may increase their marketability by adding endorsements to their Georgia Professional Standards Commission (PSC) certificates. The Department offers PSC approved endorsements in Reading, Gifted Education, K-5 Mathematics, and Online Learning.

The Teacher Education program embraces a culture of excellence and care. We have structured our curriculum and field experiences to provide candidates with the knowledge, skills and dispositions to become effective teachers and accomplished educators. We have also created an atmosphere of tolerance that demonstrates to each candidate that he or she is appreciated and his or her opinion is valued. As education is intertwined with concepts of both nature and nurture, we strive to provide opportunities to model these in the teaching and learning process to ensure candidates are prepared for today’s diverse students and classrooms.
