Dean's Welcome

Welcome to the College of Education at Armstrong State University. Our college offers a variety of programs designed to meet the needs of the professional educators in southeast Georgia and beyond.

Armstrong State University is a comprehensive institution in the University of Georgia System. We are committed to academic excellence in the teaching and learning of all students. Central to the mission of the university is the desire to "foster abilities and values essential to the development of students into knowledgeable, ethical, responsible, and creative citizens." As a professional school within the university, our mission is to prepare reflective educators who are committed to providing quality learning experiences for all students.

The preparation of professional educators cannot be accomplished on campus alone.  The College of Education is closely connected with regional schools and school districts—our partners in the preparation of professional educations.  As a student, you will complete extensive educational programs that include comprehensive clinical experiences in local schools.  Our faculty are actively engaged in school and community activities, and pride themselves in effective teaching and a dedication of life-long learning.

The College of Education offers programs for students considering a career in teaching or for a teacher looking for the challenges of graduate work.  Please review our web pages and learn more about the programs that meet your needs.  Any of your faculty, staff or I would be delighted to visit with you and provide you with additional information.  We look forward to meeting you.
