College of Education

College Structure  



We envision a College of Education that continues to grow in its national recognition for excellence and innovation in teaching, scholarship, and outreach; and becomes the choice for novice and experienced professionals desiring a high quality, flexible education to help them meet their individual, intellectual and career goals.


The mission of the College of Education is to prepare students to teach, lead, counsel, and model life-long learning; engage in scholarship that provides new pathways to meet the needs of a dynamic, diverse society; and facilitate access to learning opportunities that are authentic, student-centered, and technology-rich.




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 or questions about the Statesboro or Liberty Campus, contact Monica Brister at (912) 478-0698 or mbrister@georgiasouthern.edu. For information or questions about the Armstrong Campus, contact McKenzie Peterman at (912) 344-2570 or advisearmstrong@georgiasouthern.edu.


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.
