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.
