Offering graduate work as early as 1873 and establishing graduate¬†degrees in education since 1957, today Georgetown College offers one of¬†the largest and oldest graduate programs of its kind in the Commonwealth.¬†This program thrives because of outstanding, caring faculty, and a flexible¬†convenient course schedule at a cost comparable to that of public institutions¬†in the area. In addition, the college‚Äôs Christian character extends to its graduate¬†programs.
In contrast to the undergraduate program, most of Georgetown‚Äôs graduate¬†students are education professionals who work full-time in the schools
and accomplish their educational objectives around their work schedules.¬†Consistent with Georgetown‚Äôs high quality undergraduate teacher certification¬†program, the primary aim of the Graduate Program is to develop scholars who¬†are competent and caring educators, committed to a spirit of service and¬†learning.
To realize this goal, learning experiences center around three knowledge¬†domains: Professional Skills and Competencies, Professional Values and
Dispositions, and Reflective Practice. Our courses are taught by full-time¬†faculty of the College and by quality adjunct faculty with specialized
experience. A variety of classroom approaches, fieldwork, and independent¬†projects are integral components.
