No; however, from time to time there may be a need for an adjunct professor to teach an education class. Also, students completing a teaching internship or student teaching may be supervised by university supervisors who are not full-time faculty members in the College of Education.
Some military experiences may be considered for possible credit toward program entry requirements or program completion. Examples include training or extensive experience with technology applications for graduate program admittance, in-depth involvement in public speaking or communications for graduate program admittance, physical training for Exercise Activity Course credit for the undergraduate program (EXAC), and field experience credit for the undergraduate program if it involves direct instruction or observation of direct instruction in an academic setting for school-aged children. These are addressed during the interview process for graduate programs. For undergraduate programs, candidates meet with an academic advisor who is familiar with the EXAC courses for which military service exempts candidates. The final decision about the credit of military experience to satisfy a program entry requirement is made by the Associate Dean for the College of Education or the Dean for the College of Education. Decisions about course credit are made by the UMHB Registrar. All candidates with military experience should provide their military training transcripts to the UMHB Registrar for review, since up to 21 hours of elective course credit can be awarded based on military experience. If so, the candidate’s transcript will be noted for reference by the academic advisor.
For non-military candidates, content covering the standards for undergraduate teaching certification is provided after program entry only, with the exception of courses taken at a college with whom the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor maintains an articulation agreement to accept coursework that aligns in content and standards to the program courses. The Registrar maintains a list of all courses for which the university provides such credit. You should meet with an academic advisor to discuss credit approval.
