About Education (Corollary Major)

If you want to teach at the middle school or high school level, our Education corollary major (combined with a major in the subject area you wish to teach) will get you there.  And with Spanish and Art, you can teach in any grade, P-12! With quality teachers always in high demand, our respected and nationally-accredited Education program will prepare you for a rewarding career.

10

Ten majors can be combined with Education to gain education certification—Biology, Chemistry, Math, Physics, History, Political Science, Sociology, English, Spanish, and Art. 

P-12

For Spanish and Art, certification covers ALL grades!  For other disciplines, the certification is for grades 8-12, but can be expanded to 5-12 by adding a few extra courses.

“Georgetown College taught me the interconnectedness of all disciplines. I have to engage a teenage audience daily in my classroom, and the liberal arts education I received not only promotes creativity in my instruction, but also helps me identify connections between the content/skills of my curriculum and the interests of my students.” 

 - Kim Pangburn Shearer, ’01, Kentucky Teacher of the Year in 2012
