The Curriculum and Instruction department offers a wide range of knowledge and skills for applicants interested in becoming educators.
We offer two undergraduate programs:
We offer four graduate programs:
We also offer a Teacher Certification Only program.
Admission to Master of Education (M.Ed.) in Curriculum and Instruction Programs is competitive and some qualified students may not be admitted if demand exceeds the program’s capacity to serve all applicants. All students must meet university, college, department, and Texas Administrative Code qualifications in order to participate in educator preparation programs.
In addition, program-areas have additional requirements including documents for TEA reporting, including: 1) a written response to the given prompt (fulfills “other screening instrument” as required by The Texas Education Agency) and 2) completion of Attestation and FERPA forms. The overall grade point average (GPA) of each incoming class admitted between September 1 and August 31 of each year by an educator preparation program (EPP) may not be less than 3.00 on a four-point scale or the equivalent.
Students granted probationary admission must maintain a 3.0 (B or better) GPA in the first 9 credit hours of graduate coursework in the College of Education program to be converted from probationary to unconditional admission.
Applicants seeking admission to C&I programs must submit three recommendation forms to the department, using this Recommendation Letter Form.
Depending on the degree program, recommendation forms must be emailed to Berhane Doilicho at firstname.lastname@example.org or Courtney Jones at email@example.com.
