An information session for students interested in the Tarleton Model for Accelerated Teacher Education (TMATE) program is scheduled for 6 p.m. Monday, May 14, at the university’s Fort Worth location, 6777 Camp Bowie Blvd.
Prospective students will learn admission requirements, graduate program options and instructions for applying to the program.
Established in 1986, TMATE was one of the first university-based alternative teacher certification programs approved in Texas. Since then, thousands of people have made successful career transitions into the teaching profession through TMATE.
TMATE is a year-long graduate program for students with a bachelor's degree who want to become certified school teachers.
An additional information session is scheduled for June 11.
