Clayton State to Hold Information Session for Recently Accredited Education Degree Programs

Clayton State University's growing undergraduate curriculum recently added four new education degrees which are offered through the College of Arts & Sciences and the College of Information and Mathematical Sciences. The new programs are devoted to meeting teacher needs in Biology, English, History and Mathematics.

According to Dr. Carla Monroe, the Teacher Education department chair, the Georgia Professional Standards Commission (PSC) recently approved four new undergraduate education degrees for Clayton State, along with the University's two existing Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) degrees. The four new degrees are: a B.S. in Biology (secondary education emphasis), a B.S. in Mathematics (secondary education emphasis), a B.A. in English (secondary education emphasis), and B.A. degree in History (secondary education emphasis). Individuals who graduate from these programs will be recommended for certification to teach in grades six through 12. Each of the new degrees has its own curriculum worksheet, and is slightly different than the "regular" Biology, English, History, and Math degrees.

An information session on the undergraduate and graduate degree programs will be held on Tuesday, Oct. 27 at 11:10 a.m. in Room B-10 of the Lecture Hall at Clayton State University.
