The Teacher Recruitment Program (TRP) is a full-certification program, designed for individuals who already hold a baccalaureate degree. TRP includes 18 hours of graduate course work, typically completed in two semesters of full-time attendance. The coursework may begin in either the fall or spring semesters. The first semester classes are delivered at the Round Rock Higher Educational Center (RRHEC). Field experiences are delivered on-site in area public schools. TRP includes a full semester of student teaching or internship. The Teacher Recruitment Program (TRP) is designed to provide an accelerated pathway to teacher certification in either of two possible areas:
* Generalist (Early Childhood - 6th Grade)
* Secondary (Grades 8-12) requires at least 24 credit hours in a teachable subject area.
TRP participants have the option to complete an additional 6 graduate classes for a Masters degree in Education (MEd.) if desired. A student wishing to complete a Masters degree must pass a written comprehensive exam
