About the College of Education
As a premier professional school, Texas State University's College of Education is dedicated to enhancing human potential for all through excellent teaching, relevant scholarship, and community engagement.
Texas State University's College of Education will build on its legacy of excellence, relevance, and engagement. We will be excellent in evidence-based practice, scholarship, and teaching; relevant to the needs of the people we serve; and engaged in public and professional communities.
Whether you are preparing for a teaching career in EC-6th grade; 4th-8th grade; secondary education; or all-level special education, physical education or health education, our Office of Educator Preparation is prepared to answer any questions future educators may have about the process of teacher preparation.
We also offer a wide selection of non-teaching degrees in Health and Human Performance (e.g. athletic training, exercise and sports science, health and wellness promotion, and recreation administration) and graduate-level education fields (e.g. educational leadership, school counseling, school improvement, school psychology, professional counseling, adult education, and student affairs in higher education).
The Initial Teacher Preparation program at Texas State University is awarded TEAC accreditation by the Inquiry Brief Commission of the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) for a period of seven years, from 10/24/2016-12/31/2023. The accreditation does not include individual education courses that the EPP offers to P-12 educators for professional development, re-licensure, or other purposes.
