The Urban Education program offers three graduate programs: a 36-hour Master of Education (M.Ed. Online) degree and a 64-hour Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degree. The program is committed to developing leaders nationally and globally in urban settings, and is one of the greatest producers of urban scholars and researchers in the nation.

About

The online master’s degree plan emphasizes the integration of theory and practice, a strong knowledge base in evaluation, practitioner action-based research and community-based research. Foundational courses in the degree plan focus on theory of curriculum development, an analysis of teaching behavior and cultural foundations of education.

The required urban education electives focus on issues, policies and the history of urban education. Opportunities for international travel, conference presentations and publications are available throughout the program.

Over the years, TLAC has established a solid foundation of teacher preparation in undergraduate elementary and secondary education. In response to growing recognition to the need for more practical experience, the department continues to develop new programs and new approaches for the preparation of teachers. Many efforts have been supplemented by funded and non-funded research studies, grants and dissertations. In response to Texas legislature and national forums in the 1990s, the interdisciplinary studies degree program, which incorporates more field-based courses and experiences, was established. Today, preservice teachers usually complete 750 hours in various field-based settings.

Transform individuals, schools and society with a global view through our engaged scholarship, reflective teaching and collaborative service.

The central mission of TLAC is to create experiences that advance teaching, research and service through the application of knowledge in the preparation and development of quality educators; placing high value on collaboration, diversity, critical thinking, creativity, democratic governance and global leadership.
