This 36-hour secondary education program is designed primarily for experienced teachers who wish to:

  • Further their education and improve their teaching practice.
  • Qualify for leadership positions within their schools or districts (i.e., curriculum/instructional specialists).
  • Teach dual credit courses at the high school level.
  • Teach at a community college.

You will take 18 hours in secondary education and 18 hours in your chosen teaching field. The core courses will enhance your knowledge and skills to better serve the needs of the diverse student population in Texas. Your specialization in one of three tracks (English as a second language/bilingual, online teaching or gifted/talented) will allow you to choose 6 hours of 4 electives from inside or outside the Perkins College of Education to further expand your knowledge base. You will then complete a capstone project in conjunction with a 3-hour graduate course.

All courses for this degree are offered online, with regular virtual class meetings.
