Teacher Certification

To become a certified teacher in Texas, you need to have a bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution of higher learning, completed a teacher preparation program and passed all required exams. All teacher preparation programs must be approved by the state, and typically consist of a combination of coursework and fieldwork offered in a variety of formats.  The College of Education and Human Development offers a variety of paths to certification depending on your qualifications and needs.
