The Frank W. and Sue Mayborn School of Journalism encourages students to explore teaching at the secondary level as a career option. The student’s academic advisor in the Office of Student Advising in GAB, Room 107, can assist students with specific requirements for teacher certification in journalism. Upon completion of this program, students will be prepared to sit for the certification examinations in journalism.
Students must also meet all GPA requirements to apply for state certification. In order to enroll for the first required education course, the student must make application to the certification program in the College of Education in Matthews Hall, Room 106.
All state certification requirements and information on required examinations is available on the web site of the State Board for Education Certification (SBEC), www.tea.state.tx.us.
