Three programs are available for individuals who wish to earn a Family and Consumer Sciences Teaching Certificate after completing a baccalaureate degree:
Admission to a post-baccalaureate teacher certification program requires a baccalaureate degree in one of the human sciences specializations with an overall 2.75 GPA and a satisfactory level of performance on the TSI test or equivalent. Other program requirements include a minimum 2.75 GPA on professional education courses and courses in the teaching specialization and a grade of C or better in all required specialization and support courses. To be recommended for certification, graduates must achieve a satisfactory level of performance on the prescribed state certification examinations.
All Texas Tech teacher certification programs are approved by the State Board for Educator Certification and accredited by the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education.
Post-baccalaureate students who qualify for admission to a graduate degree program may apply graduate course work required for certification toward a Master of Science Degree in FCSE. (MS Programs)
