Trending Placement of Graduates
If you have always wanted to be a world language teacher, this is your opportunity.
The BSEd program prepares students to teach modern, classical, and less commonly taught languages in pre-school through 12th grade. Students who complete the program earn T-4 (initial) certification to teach in Georgia public schools. The program lasts one academic year (two semesters) and is filled with engaging, hands-on opportunities to apply theory into practice and to learn while doing.
Our students are always amazed at how much they learn in a short period of time as well as how fast time goes when they are in our program.
Our faculty conduct research and publish in top peer-reviewed journals in the field of second language acquisition and learning. Our curriculum in TESOL and World Language Education exposes teacher candidates to an array of clinical styles and research methods.
Teacher candidates join our highly regarded program during their final year at UGA. In the fall, students are prepared for the teaching field through two practicum experiences: one at the elementary level and one at the middle- or high-school level, in which they can apply theory and see it come to life. In the spring, our students become teachers at their host schools and teach full time for a large portion of the semester.
