|Apply Now to Start TLU's Post-baccalaureate Teacher Certification Program in August|
SEGUIN, TX – July 18, 2012 – If you have thought about becoming a teacher and you have a bachelor’s degree, Texas Lutheran University’s Post-baccalaureate Teacher Certification Program can help you meet your goal. The program is designed for adults in transition who hold bachelor’s degrees in a field other than education. Participants can match their academic background with one of 18 areas of certification.
Prospective students who have already completed a minimum of 24 hours in a subject content area need to complete, in most cases, 18 hours of professional development coursework in the Post-baccalaureate Teacher Certification Program. This includes 12 hours of academic coursework in the university classroom and six hours of internship in an approved school setting. A detailed review of each applicant’s transcript will determine exactly how many hours are required for certification. Classes are offered in the evenings on the TLU campus in Seguin.
TLU's Post-baccalaureate Teacher Certification Program is approved by the Texas Workforce Commission. Some applicants may be eligible for funding under the Workforce Investment Act (WIA). TLU also coordinates with the Texas Troops to Teachers program to assist military personnel in making successful transitions to second careers in teaching.
TLU allows entry into the program at the start of any term. Application for the fall semester begins August 29, with applications being accepted through August 3. For complete information and to download the application package, go to http://www.tlu.edu/postbac
