Our teacher certification program provides professional training for careers requiring knowledge of family and consumer sciences and expertise in instructional methods.

Upon graduating from this program, you will meet Texas requirements for teaching family & consumer science courses at the secondary level; however, you will also be required to meet the certification requirements of the Lamar University Teacher Education Program as outlined in the Teacher Education section of the Lamar website.

Prior to being certified, you must successfully complete the Family & Consumer Science content examination and the TExES examination covering Pedagogy and Professional Responsibilities.
