Program Description

This broad-field program is designed to prepare teachers of young children and leads to certification for pre-kindergarten to grade five in Georgia. The cross-disciplinary nature of the program’s course requirements, with special emphasis on content studies in mathematics and reading, corresponds to the broad and integrated nature of teaching in the elementary grades and the fundamental importance of developing the reading and mathematical skills of young learners. The program provides candidates with an understanding of developmentally appropriate practices and an awareness of and sensitivity to cultural diversity and individual differences among young learners.
