Teacher Certification

Georgia State University (GSU) offers teacher certification in French, German, Classics (Latin), and Spanish. Our remarkable program features coursework unique to other certification programs in the state. Because teacher certification in Georgia is P-12, GSU offers two methods courses that focus on elementary and middle school methods as well as a 9-12 methods course for teaching languages in high school.  Dr. Paula Garrett-Rucks directs both the P-8 methods course, 9-12 methods course as well as the Introduction Foundations of Second Language Learning course.

GSU offers traditional bachelor’s degrees in French, German, and Spanish with concentrations in Teacher Education. Additionally, GSU offers master of arts programs in French, and Spanish. Graduate students interested in becoming teachers can take additional coursework to become certified to teach languages in Georgia.
