Degree Programs

Bachelor of Science in Education (BSEd)

Prepare for a career in teaching and earn teacher certification along with your degree. Our highly ranked education offerings emphasize a solid foundation in traditional and emerging educational approaches, hands-on learning, and in-class experience across diverse disciplines.

Dual Degrees

Dual degree programs combine studies in the University of Georgia College of Education and other colleges within the University of Georgia. These programs offer you the opportunity to connect your deep interest in an academic area with your passion for educating others. You can generally earn both degrees in the same amount of time as pursuing a single degree.

Master of Art in Teaching (MAT)

The Master of Art in Teaching (MAT) focuses on advancing your teaching career and improving your classroom skills. The College of Education offers MAT degrees in a variety of subjects to give you the opportunity to dive deeply into your area of interest. Each option provides both field experience in the classroom and an exploration of pedagogical theory and implementation.

Master of Arts (MA) in Education

Forge a future beyond classroom teaching in our highly regarded, research-based master’s programs. You’ll research and complete your master’s thesis while furthering studies in your chosen discipline. These programs prepare you for doctoral studies, and many are offered in flexible formats including online and part-time options.

Master of Science (MS)

Our Master of Science (MS) degree offers two different career tracks. The thesis programs engage you in research and advanced scholarly study with the goal of pursuing a PhD or a career in research. The non-thesis programs provide advanced training in a specialized area with less of a focus on research.

Doctor of Education (EdD)

The Doctor of Education (EdD) prepares students to teach at the college level or take on a professional role in education. Our programs use a practical, entrepreneurial, and technical approach rather than a purely research-based focus. You’ll develop skills that allow you to make wide-ranging changes and an important educational impact at an organizational level, such as in school administration.
