Upon completing the BA with a major in information technology program that includes a supporting area of 22 hours of TNT courses, the student will be eligible to take the state computer science teacher certification exam. Computer science option students can also become eligible for this exam by completing the same CSE courses and completing a Mathematics and Science Secondary Teaching minor and meeting all GPA requirements to apply for state certification. Students should contact the Teach North Texas program office for more information on enrolling in the certification courses.
