The Secondary Graduate Certification Program (7-12) is designed for those candidates who have completed or will complete a baccalaureate degree and desire initial certification to teach in Texas public schools at the secondary level. Candidates are admitted upon recommendation of Department of Teaching, Learning and Culture faculty and progress through the Summer, Fall and Spring semesters as a cohort.
The certification program requires the completion of 21 graduate semester credit hours and the successful completion of the appropriate State examinations and a full-year public school internship is required of all students. Most candidates have completed the internship requirement through a paid teaching position.
The potential for a paid internship and the opportunity to apply all course work toward the Master of Education degree are unique features of this program. Students who are interested in applying certification course work toward a master's degree should contact the Department of Teaching, Learning and Culture's graduate program in Room 104B Heaton Hall.
Admission requirements for the program and for the Department of Teaching, Learning and Culture graduate program must be met by the published deadlines. See the Post-Baccalaureate Calendar for details. Information on the program, including application procedures, prerequisites and courses can be found by clicking on appropriate links.
The Teacher Education Admission Fee ($300) is charged to all students once they begin the Post-Baccalaureate Program course work. Please see the Texas A&M University Graduate Catalog for more information on this fee.
