Teacher Certification

Program Overview

Sam Houston State University has been approved to offer Post Baccalaureate teacher certification on two levels. Now you have choices!

•Undergraduate Level – This certification is completed post bachelor's degree, however, all of the certification courses are taken at the undergraduate level. Your certification will meet all state mandates, but, if you choose this option, the courses you take cannot be applied to a master's degree.

Graduate Level – This option means that all of the certification courses will be graduate level courses. Your certification will meet all state mandates and your coursework can be applied to a master's degree if you choose.

Students participating in the Post Baccalaureate Alternative Route to Certification may choose either student teaching (one semester – undergraduate hours - non-paid) or internship (one year – graduate hours – paid) as their culminating field experience.
