TAMIU College of Ed Expands Degree Offerings, Student Support this Spring


Dr. James O'Meara

The Spring semester at Texas A&M International University’s (TAMIU) College of Education will bring new degree opportunities and delivery options to provide students with opportunities to grow professionally.

Now offered online are Master of Science degrees in Bilingual Education and Special Education. Also on the degree front, a new specialization in Curriculum and Instruction with National Board certification.

The College will also be expanding special resources available to its students, including free Si Se Puede Exam Prep classes as well as new grant opportunities that enable students to work with College faculty members as pedagogical partners in improving courses.

This Spring, the College will continue to aggressively pursue conference and service opportunities while continuing to encourage others to become a part of the teaching profession.

In March, the College will participate in the 39th Annual Teach Tomorrow Summit.  It will also be involved in Texas Association of Future Educators (TAFE)  State Competitions.  This past December, the College hosted a popular TAFE Area 1 Conference, “Teach for the Stars,” that attracted over 800 high school students.

Community engagement initiatives provide College of Education students expansive experiences that meaningfully broaden their classroom learning. This Spring, students will have an opportunity to join a Mini Library project that targets adopting a library in different parts of the community.   Also available will be Lamar Bruni Vergara Literacy Project Tutoring that has been shown to dramatically impact reading skills for young readers in participating elementary campuses.

As part of its continued effort to culturally expand the classroom experience, the College will once again offer a popular Study Abroad program in Spain with longtime faculty member Dr. Diana Linn, associate professor.
