The University of Texas at Arlington College of Education offers state (TEA), regional (SACS), and nationally (NCATE) accredited programs to prepare students to for Texas Standard Certification. Our programs train students to become classroom teachers and administrators at the campus and district levels. All College of Education programs provide candidates with the basics of child and adolescent development, instructional design and classroom management with several diverse, interactive fieldwork and clinical teaching experiences.
These programs only prepare students to be certified educators in Texas. If you are an out-of-state individual seeking certification in Texas, you must present your credentials to the Texas Education Agency (TEA) for review.
If you are an out-of-state individual seeking certification in another state, you must consult with that state’s education authorities to achieve certification.
Students seeking Texas certification must satisfy a criminal background check and other legal requirements before clinical teaching and employment in a Texas school.
