A fully online program, the Master of Education in Teaching Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Students (TCLD)  focuses on culturally relevant pedagogy and will enable candidates to:

  • develop cultural and linguistic responsitivity which acknowledges that teaching and learning are inextricably embedded in students’ language, culture, and identities.
  • design and implement diverse instructional practices and models of advancing students’ linguistic, cultural, and academic identities in public school classrooms.
  • acknowledge English Learners’ home cultures and languages not as deficits, disadvantages, or problems but rather as resources to be leveraged for academic learning and mainstream cultural success.

What our students are saying about our program

If you’re considering Georgia Southern for your graduate degree or even your undergraduate degree … do it. I cannot rave enough about how great my experience has been. I went from receiving shallow, if any, feedback on my assignments at my previous institution to genuinely thoughtful and insightful feedback on literally everything I’ve done at Georgia Southern. I have genuinely learned so much from my professors and colleagues. Every single class I’ve taken so far has been meaningful. This has been such a breath of fresh air. If you want the best professors and a great degree, consider the *fully online* and extremely relevant Teaching Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Students master’s program at Georgia Southern.

Haley Johnston, current student of M.Ed. Teaching Culturally & Linguistically Diverse Students

In 2019, after 19 years of making excuses for not going to college for my master’s, I finally did it! I love being a teacher, growing my craft and finding ways to help others with my knowledge. I now have a master’s degree in Teaching Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Students and learned so much during each class. The professors at Georgia Southern University were beyond amazing! I appreciated the chance to learn with brilliant and caring educators in my cohort and construct new knowledge.
