Principal Certification

We are developing the next generation of Texas’s instructional leaders who will have the skills to transform public education in our state.

Candidates already holding a master’s degree may choose to earn the principal certification only. Candidates needing to earn a master’s degree can do so via our Master of Arts in Teaching program (MAT). The MAT plan of study can facilitate a specialization in educational leadership, allowing you to earn your MAT and principal certification simultaneously.
