After more than a year in development, the West College of Education at Midwestern State University has a program in place for those in the workplace who would like to shift their careers to teaching.

The Alternative Certification program, msUteach, allows those who already have a bachelor’s degree to obtain a teaching certificate so they might teach in the Texas public school system.

The program is online through Continuing Education and offers programs in elementary education, special education, middle/secondary English language arts & reading, middle/secondary mathematics, middle/secondary science, and middle/secondary social studies.

An entrance exam is required to show proficiency.

During the program, students need 36 clock hours of field experience in a variety of schools. At the end of the online portion of the certification, students can chose from two options: a paid one-year internship with agreement from a qualified participating school district, or a 14-week unpaid clinical teaching experience in a participating school.

The certification costs approximately $4,900 and the program is self-paced. A portion of the cost is paid up front, and the second part is paid when the student finds an internship or clinical teaching placement.
