Program Overview

The Master of Arts in Teaching program at Texas A&M University-Central Texas is specifically designed for students who have earned a bachelor’s degree and now want to transition into the teaching profession. A Master of Arts degree from Texas A&M University–Central Texas will prepare you to obtain licensure as a Texas K–12 classroom teacher in elementary, secondary, or special education.

The university-based post-baccalaureate certification route consists of six certification courses to provide students with the foundation for effective teaching. Additionally, students participate in a full-time, yearlong paid internship, and all coursework applies to master’s degree completion.

Our education professors all have decades of experience, both in the classroom and in teacher preparation, enabling students to benefit from the kind of learning and guidance that not only builds on your content area knowledge, but enhances long-term career goals as well.
