Welcome to the Graduate Teaching Academy Teaching Certificate Program
The Graduate Teaching Academy (GTA) is a graduate student-led organization supported by the Office of Graduate Studies and the Center for Teaching Excellence. Our mission is to provide professional development opportunities to equip graduate students and post-docs in the area of college teaching.
All GTA seminars and workshops are FREE and open to graduate students and post docs at Texas A&M University. Faculty members, and visiting researchers are also welcome to attend GTA events. You do not need to register to attend GTA events!
