Post-Baccalaureate Teacher Certification Plan Core Subjects 4-8

Help Students Make New Discoveries

If you've always loved kids and you want to help them succeed in life, it's never too late. Even if you began your professional life in a different career, your passion and enthusiasm for teaching kids can be enriched because of your real-world experiences in a different field. Obtaining you Post-Baccalaureate Teaching Certification Plan in Core Subjects 4-8 from University of Houston-Clear Lake will enable you to guide students as they make new discoveries, learn to problem-solve and discover how to think critically.

Build on the Skills and Experiences You Have

Many of your skills from your previous career are transferrable and will greatly enhance your ability to communicate with students and parents and manage your classroom. Through UHCL's College of Education, you'll take academic specialization courses like Shakespeare and children's literature as well as core education courses that cover topics like instructional technologies and social studies, science, and math methods. With the help and support of dedicated faculty, you'll complete your teaching internship and be fully prepared to inspire and lead young students toward academic success.

Although it is not necessary for students holding at least a bachelor's degree and seeking initial teacher certification to pursue a second bachelor's degree, those who wish to do so must meet the university's lower-level requirements in addition to the requirements for both teacher certification and the second degree, unless such requirements were met through the completion of the first bachelor's degree. These lower-level requirements are described in the Core section of the catalog.
