COE Receives Approval for Graduate Degree Certificate Upgrades

Georgia Southern College of Education graduate programs meet new graduate degree program requirements mandated by the Georgia Professional Standards Commission (GaPSC). To increase the probability that teachers make a strong impact on student achievement, the new GaPSC requirements ensure that graduate degrees in education are rigorous and directly relevant to student learning. All COE graduate degree programs meet PSC requirements; however, educators need to review the PSC certificate upgrade Rule 505-2-.41 to ensure selection of the appropriate degree program to qualify for an in-field upgrade or to upgrade by adding a new certification field. Students will have access to the same high quality education at Georgia Southern but may note degree name and minor curricular changes in some cases.
