I'm an undecided undergraduate currently debating between a traditional education degree and TFA/New Teachers Project/other alternate certification programs. I wanted to know if students with an education major can be accepted into TFA. While I was told that yes, certified teachers can apply to TFA, are they actually accepted? I thought the whole point of TFA was to certify non-teachers. If I were to major in education, would I sabotage my chances? I ask because in my area, the job market for traditionally-certified teachers is EXTREMELY competitive, and it is actually easier to get into TFA than it is to get a teaching job as an education major. Additionally, I was wondering if you have to major in the area that you are teaching--for instance, if I wanted to teach secondary English through TFA, do I need to be an English major? Finally, if anyone is in/already completed TFA, how intensive are the post-bacc certification classes?
