With the support of SEHD, we offer two pathways for non-education majors to seek a secondary teacher certification through the aggieTEACH program to become a teacher candidate. aggieTEACH-Arts & Science is under the umbrella of aggieTEACH, as Pathway 1. It is the perfect option for undergraduates in the College of Arts & Sciences with three or more semesters remaining. For students near graduation (two semesters or less remaining), consider applying to Pathway 2 to earn your teaching certificate.
