The Graduate School acts as the intellectual and academic heart of the University as we strive to train and educate the next generation of researchers, scholars, teachers, business professionals, and nurses.
Faculty members will offer you courses leading to one of 25 graduate degrees in humanities, business, education, health, physical, biological, and social sciences, and a doctoral in International Business.
We are one of a few institutions to offer a Ph.D. in International Business and have dedicated much time and effort to the success of the program. TAMIU also offers a collaborative doctoral program in Hispanic Studies.
We’re pleased to recognize the accomplishments of three TAMIU graduate degree recipients: Betsy Abastta-Santos '09, '16; Rosa Flores '99, '08; and Rebeca Martínez '03, '12. All were named recipients of the 2017 School Bell Award.
Betsy is a ninth-grade math and algebra faculty member at Harmony Science Academy and earned both undergraduate and graduate degrees in Psychology at TAMIU. Eager to motivate her students, she is also a licensed chemical dependency counselor intern working to become a fully certified LCDC.
Rosa is on the Special Education faculty at A. T. Dovalina Elementary School. Her commitment, including extended tutorials for students, has helped them to achieve impressive test scores. She earned her Master’s degree in Generic Special Education at TAMIU. She also dedicates her volunteer service to fundraising and fitness events that benefit cancer patients.
Rebeca Martínez graduated from TAMIU’s Graduate School with a Master's of Science in Education in 2013. She’s logged some 13 years of education experience, which has earned her selection to various leadership roles and committees representing United Independent School District’s J. B. Alexander High School campus. Despite her busy schedule, she still finds time to reach out and help others. "I am committed to strengthening the community through volunteer work, because it is that extra time that you take to help others that makes a difference," she says. Martínez is a current member of the Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi, and past member of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, and former secretary of the TAMIU's Mathematics Club.
