Overview

About the Degree: 

The TESOL & World Language Education Program offers a B.S.Ed. at the undergraduate level. The B.S.Ed. program prepares students to teach modern, classical, and Less Commonly Taught Languages in pre-school through 12th grade. Students earn T-4 (initial) certification to teach in Georgia public schools.

Academics

What you will learn: 

In 1998-99, the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia published Principles for the Preparation of Educators for the Schools. This document states that teacher educators from The University of Georgia must be able to guarantee the quality of its graduates in teacher education programs. As a result of that mandate, we ask teacher candidates in the Foreign Language Education Initial Certification Program to read, discuss, and sign this Quality Assurance Contract. The contract spells out the principles of professional conduct that you agree to uphold, efforts we (the University faculty and graduate assistants) will make to assist teacher candidates who are not meeting those expectations, and possible consequences for those who do not live up to this agreement. By living up to the Quality Assurance Contract, you will have demonstrated both your potential to meet the program’s goals for professional educators and your commitment to be a good citizen of a school community and the teaching profession at large.
