The University offers a program of studies in teacher education and recommends candidates for certification by the State Board of Educator Certification (SBEC). The recommendation is based on a candidate's successful completion of 24 term hours in education (EDU) courses and six hours of student teaching or a supervised full-year internship. In addition, candidates must pass the TExES examinations. Education courses are designed to include all standards tested on the TexES examinations and to prepare students for the requirements, including a major. (Prospective secondary teachers must have majors in appropriate teaching fields.)
