Certification Programs

Requirements for licensure and/or certification vary from state to state. Our programs prepare students for licensure and/or certification in the State of Texas. We do not represent that our programs prepare students for licensure and/or certification in other states.

This is not a one-size-fits-all world, and we do not believe that one set of admissions criteria is appropriate for all graduate programs; therefore, each of WTAMU's graduate programs has its own specific admissions requirements, determined by the program advisor.

Certification-Only Programs

Principal or Superintendent Certification

If you already have a master's in education, you can work on principalship coursework without pursuing another master's degree. If you have a master's in education degree and your principal's certification, you can take coursework for the superintendent's certificate. For more information about either of these programs, please contact Dr. Gary Bigham at gbigham@wtamu.edu or 806-651-3622.

Interdisciplinary Studies

We also know that some students have goals which cannot be met by a traditional graduate program. For those students, an Master of Arts or Master of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies may be the perfect fit.
