Library Media M.Ed.

The fully-online Master of Education with a major in Library Media program requires a minimum of 36 semester hours of coursework. As a student in the program, you’ll take courses in professional education, courses in the certification area, and additional program requirements or electives. The T4 certification in a teaching field is not required for admission, but students must hold a bachelor’s degree. Student must also pass or exempt the GACE Program Admission Assessment to be admitted to the program. Upon completion of the Library Media program, students will obtain a S-5 certificate in Media Specialist issued by the Professional Standards Commission of Georgia. Georgia College recommendation is required to receive the certification.

The core for the majority of the M.Ed. programs at GC is school improvement. In this program, educators focus on issues central to school improvement while also learning about best practices in their fields (e.g., early childhood, middle grades, secondary, special education, leadership, library media and educational technology). Based on data gathered in their own schools, educators begin to examine questions such as “What is school improvement? How does change occur? What changes need to be made at my school to best facilitate student learning?” Participants have the opportunity to enroll in classes with other educators from their school, thus creating a cluster of individuals ready to address school improvement as a team. This work is negotiated among educators, their administration and professors. Through this experience, teachers examine their school and create a plan for investigating a problem and developing new practices. Results of school improvement interventions are shared with a wider professional community.
