To qualify for graduation, students must complete an approved program with a minimum of 36 hours of coursework with an earned 3.0 (on a 4.0 scale) overall grade point average. Students are also required to successfully pass the comprehensive examination. An application for graduation must be submitted to the Office of Student Records no later than the semester before the student expects to graduate.
Upon graduation, all coursework applicable to the master’s degree must be no older than seven years.
The state Board of Education Certification, not Texas Wesleyan University, awards teaching certificates and endorsements. To qualify for a Texas Teaching certificate and/or endorsement, in addition to the required coursework, students must pass all required certification exams (TExES).
Students may complete one or more concentration areas in the Master of Education program. All degree requirements must be met for each concentration that is declared. Students must fulfill the requirements of each by completing the basic Educational Foundational Core courses (12 hours) and the specific concentration courses for each concentration.
Students completing the Master of Education Program must pass a University-administered comprehensive examination. The comprehensive examination is administered once each semester and once during the summer.
