Content Field Plans

Every aggieTEACH student must complete the content field plan. This plan lists the specific content classes (i.e. Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics, etc.) students must take to get certified to teach the desired high school subject(s). Additionally, these courses help prepare students to be successful on the state of Texas certification exams. The templates below provide the required content coursework for each area of certification. For most students these courses are already a part of their degree plan.

Physical Sciences – Holders of this certificate are eligible to teach science in Grades 6, 7, and 8 and all physics and chemistry courses, including Integrated Physics and Chemistry, in Grades 9-12.  Majors that fit well with this plan are Chemistry, Food Science, and Physics.

Composite Sciences – Holders of this certificate are eligible to teach science in Grades 7 and 8 and all science courses in Grades 9-12.  Majors that fit well with this plan are Biology, Chemistry, Environmental Geosciences, Geology, Meteorology, Physics, University Studies Science for Teaching, Zoology.

Chemistry – Holders of this certificate are eligible to teach science in Grades 7 and 8 and all chemistry courses in Grades 9-12. Majors that fit well with this plan are Chemistry, Food Science, Nutrition.
