What our students are saying about our program

“If you’re considering Georgia Southern for your graduate degree or even your undergraduate degree … do it. I cannot rave enough about how great my experience has been. I went from receiving shallow, if any, feedback on my assignments at my previous institution to genuinely thoughtful and insightful feedback on literally everything I’ve done at Georgia Southern. I have genuinely learned so much from my professors and colleagues. Every single class I’ve taken so far has been meaningful. This has been such a breath of fresh air. If you want the best professors and a great degree, consider the *fully online* and extremely relevant Teaching Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Students master’s program at Georgia Southern”.

Haley Johnston, current student of M.Ed. Teaching Culturally & Linguistically Diverse Students

“In 2019, after 19 years of making excuses for not going to college for my master’s, I finally did it! I love being a teacher, growing my craft and finding ways to help others with my knowledge. I now have a master’s degree in Teaching Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Students and learned so much during each class. The professors at Georgia Southern University were beyond amazing! I appreciated the chance to learn with brilliant and caring educators in my cohort and construct new knowledge”.

Paige Watts, Spring ‘21 graduate of M.Ed. Teaching Culturally & Linguistically Diverse Students
