The aggieTEACH program began in 2001 as a collaboration between the College of Science and the College of Education and Human Development to meet the rising demand for highly-qualified secondary mathematics and science teachers in Texas and across the nation. In 2020 aggieTEACH was expanded to include other colleges and departments at Texas A&M University. In the fall of 2022 the program in the College of Arts & Sciences is now known as aggieTEACH-Math & Science, and we are under the umbrella of the aggieTEACH family as Pathway 1. To obtain teacher certification, each aggieTEACH-Math & Science student must have a major in a mathematics- or science-related field and a minor in Secondary Education (SEED)** through the TLAC Department in the School of Education and Human Development.
In the years since, Texas A&M University has become a proven state leader in mathematics and science teacher production. aggieTEACH-Math & Science has aided in this growth by producing large numbers of high school mathematics and science teachers. Since its inception, aggieTEACH (and now aggieTEACH-Math & Science) has produced more than 400 mathematics and science teachers certified to teach in Texas high schools.
Our goal at aggieTEACH-Math & Science is to have students successfully complete the program in the traditional four years of college so when students exit our program, they hold both a bachelor’s degree and a Texas Secondary Teaching Certificate. Our students are ready to teach in Texas public schools immediately upon completion of the program.
