Master of Education in Middle Grades Education Online Program

A fully online program, the Master of Education in Middle Grades Education is designed for individuals who currently hold a renewable Induction or Professional Level Four Certificate or equivalent in Middle Grades Education with certification in one of the following concentration areas:

  • Middle Grades Language Arts
  • Middle Grades Mathematics
  • Middle Grades Science
  • Middle Grades Social Studies

This master’s program is based upon the concept of developmentally appropriate practices and the value of diverse, intensive field experiences working with diverse student populations. You will experience program outcomes meant to drive your teaching career forward.

The program is approved by the Georgia Professional Standards Commission (PSC) and meets the PSC’s certificate upgrade requirements.

(Note: Individuals seeking initial certification and those who hold a non-renewable (NR) teacher certification, should pursue the MAT degree rather than this Master in Education [M.Ed.] degree program.)
