College Structure  

Overview

Mission

The mission of the College of Education is to prepare educators and other service professionals to be lifelong learners with scholary based knowledge, skills, and experiences to meet the needs of a diverse global community. 

Vision

Information 

Advisement

Undergraduate

Education majors are assigned to a professional advisor for program planning and course scheduling. Advisors are located on the Statesboro Campus in the COE Advisement Center in the College of Education Building Room 1107, in the Student Success Center on the Armstrong Campus, and on the Liberty Campus. Since the College’s programs are developed to enable students to meet the certification requirements of the Georgia Professional Standards Commission, it is critical that students meet with their advisor to plan their program of study. All students must complete the core curriculum; however, in order to meet the requirements of the teaching field, professional education, and certification, it is advisable for students to declare an intent to major in education before the second semester of the sophomore year. Prior to admission into the Teacher Education Program, students are designated as non-certification education majors. For additional information please visit the COE Advisement Center webpage.

Graduate

Graduate students are advised by a professional staff advisor or faculty member from their program. Graduate students should reach out to their graduate program director or the Graduate Academic Services Center for information regarding the structures in place to facilitate advisement. For more information visit Graduate Academic Advisement .

Graduate students can contact the Graduate Academic Services Center for more information about their program director or advisor.
