Education Specialist (Ed.S.) in Curriculum and instruction: Teaching & Learning Exemplary Teaching

(Formerly the Ed.S. in Teaching & Learning: Exemplary Teaching)


Effective Fall 2011, the Ed.S. in Teaching and Learning: Exemplary Teaching will change to the Ed.S. in Curriculum and Instruction: Teaching & Learning Exemplary Teaching. The Curriculum and Instruction major will classify as a new field certification. Consequently, GAPSC will be developing standards and assessments over the next two years. As a result, the program has extended grandfathering dates. Students must enroll in the program before January 15, 2013 and must graduate before September 15, 2015. To review the complete requirements, visit GAPSC Rule 505-2-.41.

Admission Overview

NOTE: Retention, Dismissal Policy - Earning grades below “B” in graduate courses will result in the following consequences: Students admitted Fall 2011and thereafter will be dismissed from the Graduate School if they accumulate three or more academic deficiency points unless otherwise indicated by individual program policy. A grade of “C” (although it may be credited toward a degree) equals one deficiency point. A grade of “D,” “WF” or “F,” or “U” (none of which will be credited toward a degree) equals two deficiency points. Candidates admitted BEFORE Fall 2011 and receiving two grades below “C” (“D”, “F”, “WF”,“U”) will be dismissed from the program. One grade below a "C" results in a warning.
