College of Education Launches TCU Teach Master’s Program
TCU’s College of Education has launched an innovative new program for new college graduates and working professionals looking to transition to a challenging and rewarding career in education. The TCU Teach Master’s Program offers individuals the opportunity to earn a master’s degree and teaching certificate for grades 6 through 12 in less than one year.
“The TCU Teach program provides high quality clinical experiences and innovative pedagogy classes to prepare future teachers with the skills and strategies to engage and teach adolescents,” Jan Lacina, Associate Dean of Graduate Studies, said. “School districts across the country often struggle to staff classrooms with adequate numbers of teachers; TCU Teach meets the needs of our community by preparing high quality teachers for the demands of ever-changing middle and high schools.”
The 30-hour TCU Teach program offers on-campus classes at TCU and student teaching placement in one of the university’s partner districts. Students will have the opportunity to teach abroad, and will be eligible for generous financial aid.
Candidates must hold bachelor’s degrees in fields related to social studies, science, mathematics and English. Students will be admitted as a cohort and will take 12 hours of coursework together during the summer session.
By graduation, students will have one year of experience working with adolescents in a school placement, a master’s degree, and a teaching certificate.
