7a Admission Requirements
Admittance to the Early Childhood, Middle Grades, Secondary English, and Secondary Math programs leading to teacher certification requires the teacher candidate to have completed the required lower division core curriculum or have an AA degree. A transfer candidate without an AA must also meet the lower division requirements by completing any missing lower division curriculum requirements or by meeting course requirements with equivalent transfer credits. Middle Grades, Secondary English, and Secondary Math Post Baccalaureate Programs require the candidate to have a bachelor’s degree.
Requirements for admissions are outlined in the link entitled Admissions Requirements Checklist for Thomas University Division of Education. Admission requirements are covered in EDU 200 - Introduction to the Teaching Profession to help streamline admissions into the Division of Education’s upper division. Interview dates are set in advance and announced on the department website. One of the final steps in the admissions process, the interview, is evaluated using the Interview Assessment Form. The teacher candidate progression sheets (ECE, MGE, SEC English, SEC Math, MGE Post Baccalaureate, SEC English Post Baccalaureate, SEC Math Post Baccalaureate) are used with the candidate during advising each semester.
