Program Links

The Dual-Certification Elementary and Special Education Certification track is offered on the Statesboro campus. This program of study leads to initial pre-school through grade 5 (P-5) teacher certification as both a P-5 general education teacher and a P-5 special education teacher.

During the program, you will have many experiences in public school classrooms prior to the student teaching semester. All field experiences, including student teaching, take place within a 70 mile radius of the Georgia Southern campus.

Upon successful completion of the program and passing the Dual Certification GACE exam, and the edTPA portfolio, you will qualify for Georgia’s P-5 teacher Induction certification.
