The University is committed to excellence in the preparation of teachers. The university teacher education programs respond to state  competencies through carefully constructed curricula aligned with state and national standards.

The Dean and the faculty of the College coordinate the Teacher Education program in concert with the Professional Education Council. This Council includes representatives from the College of Professional Education (COPE) and all academic specializations related to teacher certification. Academic advising is available to students from the academic specializations and the College of Professional Education.

Post-baccalaureate students who wish to pursue a Texas teaching certificate should inquire in the COPE Student Support Center for information about options.
