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. To obtain teacher certification, each aggieTEACH student must obtain a major in a mathematics- or science-related field and a minor in Applied Learning in STEM** through the TLAC Department in the College 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 has aided in this growth by producing large numbers of high school mathematics and science teachers. Since its inception, aggieTEACH has produced more than 400 mathematics and science teachers certified to teach in Texas high schools.
Our goal at aggieTEACH 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.
