In addition to full field teacher certification preparation, Georgia State University offers preparation for state certification endorsements in some specific areas of training, service, and leadership. All such programs require acceptable teaching or appropriate school experiences and admission to the College of Education and Human Development as graduate students. Program applicants must be fully certified teachers.
Program Academic Regulations
Nine semester hours of coursework are required for the endorsement in preschool special education for professionals holding teacher certification in early childhood education, special education, or speech language pathology. Completion of the coursework requirements below, as designated, qualifies the students for an endorsement in preschool handicapped education.
Students must earn a grade of “B” or higher in each course of the endorsement. If the student earns a grade below “B” in a course, s/he must repeat that course. Students will be allowed to repeat a course in this manner one time. Students who fail to earn a grade of “B” or higher after taking the course a second time will be scholastically excluded from this endorsement. Students must earn a grade of “B-” or higher in courses outside of the special education program.
