Teacher Education, Kinesiology and Psychology

The Charter School of Education and Human Sciences, established in 1992, includes the departments of kinesiology, psychology and teacher education. Our mission is to prepare and develop individuals who are mindful of the complex nature of our society. The programs in the Charter School are innovative, academically challenging and field-based. Exciting opportunities are available for students with an interest in research to work with faculty on a variety of projects.

We are proud of our psychology, kinesiology and teacher education programs in the Charter School of Education and Human Sciences. Our programs go through in-depth reviews on a regular basis. External reviews are conducted every five years for the psychology and kinesiology programs and every seven years by the Georgia Professional Standards Commission (GAPSC) and the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE). Each program in our major is grounded to the liberal arts, culturally responsive, technologically facilitated and includes experiences in schools and communities.
