B.S. in Elementary/Special Education


South Georgia State College (SGSC) and the University of North Georgia (UNG) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) which will provide students at SGSC the opportunity to obtain a dual certification degree in elementary education and special education.

Students attending SGSC will be able to complete the four-year Early Childhood/Special Education program (P-5) and qualify for teacher certification through the Georgia Professional Standards Commission (GaPSC). Students graduating from this program will receive a Bachelor of Science in Early Childhood/Special Education degree from SGSC. 

The Bachelor of Science with a major in elementary and special education (ELESPED) program at South Georgia State College offers a dual major of 127 hours in elementary and special education, preparing students to work in both fields from pre-kindergarten through fifth grade. Not only are our teacher candidates in the ELESPED program at SGSC well-prepared for the classroom due to their intensive field experiences and internships, but our ELESPED candidates work with faculty who are well versed in current pedagogical practices.

Our next informational meetings are as follows:

Tuesday, January 19th, 2021 - Douglas Campus - Davis Hall, room 102 at 6:00pm
Thursday, 21st, 2021 - Waycross Campus - Education Building Auditorium - 6:00pm
