Students who wish to pursue teacher certification with a concentration in History or Geography through Georgia College, which allows the student to receive both certification and master’s degree in one extra year of study, should pursue a B.A. in History or Geography first. In addition, the College of Education recommends joining the Future High School Educators Club in order to begin making contacts in the College of Education and to learn more about the Master of Arts in Teaching (M.A.T.) degree. You can contact Dr. Cynthia Alby for more information. In addition to history requirements, students are encouraged to take these education courses EDUC2110, EDUC2120, and EDUC2130.
For more information on this program, contact Dr. Kevin Crabb, M.A.T. Coordinator, Room 201C Kilpatrick Education Building or 478-445-2359.
