Can I complete the concentration online?

Yes, the MAT’s Health and Physical Education program is offered as an online program.

What background do I need?

Health and Physical Education certification (P-12) for candidates who hold a bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited institution. The program of study is designed to meet all content and methods requirements for initial certification in 36 credit hours. There are no undergraduate prerequisite courses for the program since that content knowledge is embedded in the current courses.  Please note that during the Master of Arts, candidates will be required to perform field experiences including student teaching/internship in Georgia school systems.

What certification will I be eligible for upon completion of this concentration?

Upon successful completion of all program requirements and passing the appropriate GACE exam, you will be eligible for Georgia T-5 Health and Physical Education Certification (P-12). The program is an NCATE accredited, Georgia Professional Standards Commission approved program that is recognized through reciprocity in many other states in the U.S.
