Many students who pursue this degree are career changers who want to add a Georgia teaching certificate to an existing degree in an undergraduate content field. Students must complete the Georgia Educator Ethics - Program Entry Assessment and must pass or be exempt from the GACE Program Admission Assessment to be admitted to this program. An undergraduate GPA of 2.7 is required for admission.
