Education Major Requirements

According to Texas State law, international students who wish to pursue teacher education programs must meet minimum test score requirements as follows:
  1. Submit a TOEFL exam score with a minimum Listening score of 26.
  2. Submit a qualifying ACT or SAT score:
    • 1070/1140 (old/new) composite SAT score (math & critical reading, with minimum individual scores of 500 each)
    • 23 composite ACT score with a minimum individual English and Math score.
International students who would like to teach are encouraged to pursue a major in the subject they would like to teach, such as math or history. After earning a bachelor's degree at Baylor, they are then able to seek teacher's certification from the state or country in which they want to teach.
