General Statement

The College of Education and Human Development is dedicated to transforming and enriching lives with programs built on the core Aggie values of leadership, excellence, integrity, loyalty, respect and selfless service.  

Consistent with the land grant mission of our university, the teaching, research and service activities of the college foster innovation and development, influence policy and practice, and transform the lives of individuals in our state and across the nation. Using basic and applied research activities, the college aims to translate research findings into accessible models and structures that will fundamentally improve educational and health outcomes for all.

With outstanding faculty and students, the college creates a community of scholars who impact the world. Its faculty provide innovative, high-impact educational experiences with an emphasis on transformational learning opportunities.

The college has a history of preparing high-quality teachers and administrators and is consistently among the leading institutions in the state for producing the highest number of certified teachers in high-need areas. It continues this tradition of preparing professionals and leaders in education, sport, business, government, and health through programs in four academic departments: Educational Administration and Human Resource Development (EAHR), Educational Psychology (EPSY), Health and Kinesiology (HLKN), and Teaching, Learning and Culture (TLAC).

The college manages programs for the preparation of certified school personnel as well as human service professionals in the private sector, state and community agencies. Majors include interdisciplinary studies (certification) EC-6, middle school, bilingual and special education; technology management and human resource development; health (including school health education, community health, and allied health); kinesiology (including physical education certification); and sport management. Students interested in any elementary, middle school or secondary certification programs are responsible for meeting with a college advisor. Advisors have specific information available regarding all program options.

The College of Education and Human Development is required by Federal policy to make available the summary report of students’ scores on the TExES examination. This information is available from the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs.

Requirements for Admission to Teacher Education Programs

The State of Texas establishes standards for teacher education programs. All certification programs at Texas A&M are in compliance with these requirements. Students must meet state, University, College of Education and Human Development and department/program requirements for matriculation into a teacher education program. Students are responsible for contacting the departmental advisors to obtain information about specific requirements for their major and program areas.

Teacher Education Retention Policy

A student, after being admitted to teacher education, who fails to continue to meet all requirements, will be dropped from the program and may not continue in or register for any professional teacher education course. Any student removed from or who discontinues student teaching because of unsatisfactory performance will be dropped from the teacher education program. A student dropped from the teacher education program may apply through their respective department for readmission to the teacher education program.
