College of Education

The UNG College of Education is unlike any other in the nation because it features a unique mix of learning centers and education programs. One-of-a-kind centers offer intensive English learning and a culture center that focuses on the life, literature and art of the Appalachian Region.

Degree programs in the Teacher Education and Kinesiology departments prepare students for life outside the classroom. UNG offers one of the most immersive programs in the nation. Teacher certification candidates spend more time in the classroom than at typical universities and internship opportunities in Kinesiology often lead to jobs after college.  Get on track for your career today with a degree from the UNG College of Education.
