Post-Baccalaureate Program for Teacher Certification

Persons who already have baccalaureate degrees may seek teacher certification. They should consult with an advisor in the Teacher Development Center to develop a certification plan after they have been admitted to the university through the Office of Admissions. Post-Baccalaureate students must meet the 24 semester hour requirement in the appropriate teaching field. A certification plan will be developed based on an evaluation of the student’s transcript. Post‑Baccalaureate students must demonstrate computer literacy, effective public speaking, and complete 12 semester hours of English.  All students must fulfill the UT Dallas requirements for student teaching or supervised internship.

See the website – for the most current information and course requirements.

Graduate Degrees

Individuals pursuing an advanced degree should consider programs leading to a Master of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies degree in the School of Interdisciplinary Studies or the Master of Arts in Teaching degree in Humanities, Mathematics Education, or Science Education. The M.A.T. is aimed at developing a master teacher whose competence in the discipline is enhanced by the ability to create an effective teaching environment. Certification requirements may also be used to fulfill some graduate degree requirements. Requirements for the M.A.T. degree may require additional professional education course work. Interested students should contact an advisor in the School of Arts and Humanities or Science/Mathematics Education or School of Interdisciplinary Studies.
