Located in the bilingual and binational context of the border, the Department of Teacher Education seeks to prepare top-quality teachers, teacher leaders, and researchers who understand and engage in highly responsive teaching and learning practices that promote student success. Highlights of our programs are the University’s unique location on the U.S.-Mexico border and faculty with expertise in preparing teachers, teacher leaders, and researchers to work with Latinos/as and English Language Learners.
The department includes two divisions:
The Division of Bilingual Education, Literacy, and Sociocultural Studies (BELSS) offers undergraduate and graduate programs that fuse research and practice in order for students to become world-class teachers, leaders, and specialists in the fields of bilingual/ESL, literacy, and social studies education. Our students are committed to creating dynamic, high-quality, culturally- and linguistically-responsive learning environments that foster the success of all learners.
The Division of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Education in the College of Education has at its core the preparation of today and tomorrow’s teachers for working with modern students in multicultural settings who need to find motivation and engagement in their learning. STEM Education faculty integrate their research into the community and the classroom, and bring innovative and creative scholarship to life. Community service is critical in STEM Education and is a foundational aspect for integrating teaching and learning.
