CHANGES IN THE COLLEGE OF EDUCATION CHAPTER
OF THE UNDERGRADUATE CATALOG, 1998-2000
OF THE UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS

I. On pages 98 and 99 of The Undergraduate Catalog, 1998-2000, in the ADMISSION AND REGISTRATION section, make the following changes:

ADMISSSION TO THE PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT SEQUENCE IN TEACHER CERTIFICATION PROGRAMS

[No changes in the first or second paragraph]

1.   
Pass each part of [a competence examination in reading, writing, and mathematics] The Texas Academic Skills Program (TASP) test, unless the student is exempt from TASP on the basis of SAT, ACT, or TAAS scores, or has completed equivalent coursework approved by an academic adviser in the Office of the Dean. [This examination, the Texas Academic Skills Program (TASP) test,] The TASP test is an assessment of basic college-level skills for all students as well as a part of the teacher certification process.
2.   
Complete at least seventy-two semester hours of college coursework with an acceptable grade point average. A University grade point average of at least 2.50 is required for consideration. Applicants with a University grade point average of 2.50 to 3.00 are considered individually. Those with a University grade point average of 3.00 or higher are eligible for priority selection. Postbaccalaureate and [Transfer] transfer students must also present a grade point average of at least 2.50 on all college work taken elsewhere to be eligible for consideration.
3.   
Complete a minimum amount of prerequisite coursework. Those interested in elementary certification must complete nine semester hours in applied learning and development, Kinesiology 314, Mathematics 316K and 316L, and [a course in computer applications] Curriculum and Instruction 371 (Topic 15: Computing Tools for Educators); those interested in secondary certification must complete at least six semester hours in each field for which certification is sought before they begin student teaching.1
4.   
Receive the approval of the Professional Education Admissions Committee. The student must submit an application for admission to professional education courses by March 1 for entrance in the fall semester or by October 1 for entrance in the spring semester. Application information is available in the [Office of Student Field Experiences and Placement] Education Career Services and Field Experiences Office, George I. Sánchez Building 294, and at http://utdirect.utexas.edu/edapp/experience-placement.html. The application process allows the student to outline his or her background [and motivation to enter the teaching profession as well as] and any special circumstances affecting his or her situation.
     The committee’s decision is based on the applicant’s completion of the academic eligibility requirements and suitability for the teaching profession as demonstrated by the application [, essay,] and, in some cases, an admission interview. For secondary school certification applicants, the committee considers University grades in the teaching fields as well as the cumulative University grade point average; [to qualify for student teaching, these] applicants must have a University grade point average of at least 2.50 in each teaching field in which they seek certification, as well as a cumulative University grade point average of at least 2.50. In some teaching fields, a higher University grade point average and a higher grade point average in the teaching field may be required for admission to the professional development sequence. Students must maintain the required grade point averages to remain in the professional sequence.
     Each student who submits an application by the deadline and meets the minimum academic eligibility criteria will receive full consideration by the committee; however, fulfillment of these minimum requirements does not ensure committee approval. If more qualified students apply than the college has space for, admission may be based on the student’s grade point average in certain preprofessional courses, the number of hours the student needs to complete the program, and whether the

 

176


student is enrolled in prerequisite courses at the time of application. Applicants with a University grade point average of 3.00 or higher receive priority in selection.

footnote:

1. Students pursuing secondary teacher certification with mathematics or science as their first teaching field must follow the curriculum prescribed by the UTeach program. UTeach is a collaboration between the College of Education and the College of Natural Sciences; program advising is housed in the College of Natural Sciences. Additional information is available from the College of Natural Sciences Office of Sponsored Projects and at http://www.utexas.edu/cons/uteach.

Students pursuing secondary teacher certification with mathematics or science as their second teaching field must follow the requirements of the College of Education given in this chapter.



II. On page 100 of The Undergraduate Catalog, 1998-2000, in the GENERAL REQUIREMENTS section, make the following changes:


1.   
As a prerequisite to student teaching, students seeking a secondary school teaching certificate must complete in residence at least six semester hours of upper-division coursework in each [of two areas of specialization] approved teaching field, or at least nine semester hours of upper-division coursework in a composite [specialization] teaching field. Student teaching must also be completed in residence. Those seeking elementary school certification must complete in residence at least twelve semester hours in the professional development sequence, including student teaching. Residence credit includes only courses taken at the University; it does not include credit by examination or courses taken by extension or correspondence.
[2.   
Courses numbered in two departments, one of which is in the College of Education, may not be used to satisfy noneducation elective requirements for degree purposes.]
[3.   
Each degree program is arranged in the sequence best calculated to ensure orderly progress of the student’s college work. Any student who registers for twelve semester hours or more in a long-session semester must include at least [nine] six semester hours of coursework listed as basic education requirements for the degree being sought until each of these requirements has been fulfilled. At the dean’s discretion, adjustments may be made when exceptional circumstances exist, or when a student has gained credit through examination, or when the student is enrolling for fewer than twelve semester hours of credit in a long-session semester.]


[No changes in numbers 4 through 8, except that each item is renumbered]

[9.] 7.   

To graduate, all students must have a University grade point average of at least 2.00. In addition, a secondary school certification student must have a University grade point average of at least [2.25] 2.50 in courses applicable to the [areas of specialization] teaching field(s) to qualify for teacher certification. To be considered for enrollment in student teaching, secondary school certification students must present a University grade point average of at least 2.50 and a grade point average of at least 2.50 in each [area of specialization] teaching field. [No further changes in number 9]
[10.] 8.   
Before they begin professional development sequence coursework, all [All] University students, including those who have already earned degrees, must [pass either] have passed the Texas Academic Skills Program (TASP) examination or an acceptable substitute examination or must have completed equivalent coursework approved by an academic adviser in the Office of the Dean [before they begin professional development sequence coursework in education].


177


III. On pages 101 and 102 of The Undergraduate Catalog, 1998-2000, in the AREA A: ENGLISH, WRITING, FOREIGN LANGUAGE section, make the following changes:

[No changes in numbers 1 and 2]

3.   
Foreign language: All beginning students entering the College of Education must have completed two years in a single foreign language in high school. In addition, students must demonstrate proficiency in a single foreign language equivalent to that shown by completion of the second college semester in the language; proficiency is usually shown by earning credit for language courses 506 and 507 or the equivalent. [Students who enter the University with fewer than two high school units in a single foreign language must take the two college semesters in a language without degree credit to remove their language deficiency.] Prospective Texas teachers are strongly encouraged to take Spanish to fulfill the language requirement.

[No changes in the next paragraph]

[To achieve proficiency as rapidly as possible, qualified students are urged to take the intensive foreign language study program. Information about this program is available from the appropriate language department.] Courses used to fulfill the foreign language requirement must be language courses; literature-in-translation courses, for example, may not be counted.

Students seeking certification to teach in bilingual classrooms must complete an academic specialization in Spanish [or another approved language]; they must also take the following additional courses prior to beginning the professional development sequence: Curriculum and Instruction 371 (Topic 4: Spanish Language and Methods for the Bilingual Classroom Teacher: Oral Language), 371 (Topic 6: Spanish Language and Methods for the Bilingual Classroom Teacher: Written Language), and 371 (Topic 13: Applied Linguistics and Methods in English as a Second Language).

VIII.
On page 103 and 104 of The Undergraduate Catalog, 1998-2000, in the YOUTH AND COMMUNITY STUDIES section, make the following changes:

Completion of a major in youth and community studies does not entitle the student to receive a teaching certificate. For this major the student must complete basic education requirements, prescribed work in [areas


179


of specialization] applied learning and development, prescribed work in a minor, prescribed work in professional development, and electives.

[No changes in number 1]

[2.   
Prescribed work in areas of specialization:
At least thirty-six semester hours, at least eighteen of which are upper-division, in a program designed to prepare students to work in educational or other service settings. Each program should be centered on a specific occupational goal. Programs must be approved by both the dean and the appropriate department chairman in the College of Education.]
2.   
Prescribed work in applied learning and development:

a.   

Three semester hours chosen from Child Development 313, Educational Psychology 332, 363M (Topic 3: Adolescent Development), Psychology 304, 309, and other approved courses.

Prescribed work in a minor:
Eighteen semester hours, nine of which must be upper-division, in a subject area outside the major that is approved by an academic adviser. No more than six semester hours may be counted both toward the minor and toward the basic education requirements.

Rationale:

Since this degree does not lead to teacher certification, the substitution of a minor, which may be chosen from non-teaching subject areas, in place of an academic specialization (elementary or middle school subjects), might allow students more options toward their future profession, e.g. a minor in business foundations, communications, computer applications, or psychology.

[3.]4.   
Prescribed work in professional development
Eighteen semester hours of upper-division coursework in education approved by [the appropriate department chairman and the dean] an academic adviser in the dean’s office. Registration in the professional development sequence is restricted to those who have received approval for this major from [the dean] an academic adviser. Before beginning the professional development sequence, students must have a University grade point average of at least 2.00 [and must have passed each section of the Texas Academic Skills Program (TASP) examination].

Sport Management

[A program in sport management has been approved under the major in youth and community studies.] The sport management program includes twenty-seven semester hours of coursework in sport law, sport sociology, sport management, sport ethics, structure and organization of sport programs, and sport finance. Other requirements include eighteen semester hours, nine of which must be upper-division, in an approved minor; three semester hours of fieldwork; and six semester hours in a professional development internship. The student who plans to major in sport management must apply for admission to the program.

[Students who major in kinesiology noncertification choose either the general program or the health promotion and fitness option.] The general kinesiology (noncertification) program is appropriate preparation for further study in sport and exercise sciences or in movement-related areas such as physical therapy. The health promotion and fitness [option] major is designed to prepare graduates for a number of nonschool professions involving wellness, fitness, rehabilitation, and disease prevention.

[No changes in next paragraph]

BASIC EDUCATION REQUIREMENTS

The basic education requirements below apply to both majors leading to the Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology degree.
