Introduction

The Department of Teacher Education, Educational Leadership and Policy supports educators at all stages of their careers to become qualified, competent and caring professionals in the diverse classrooms of New Mexico.

Aspiring teachers may seek initial teacher licensure in our Elementary Education or Secondary Education Programs. In addition to baccalaureate degrees with standard licensure, we also offer graduate students licensure.

Teaching practitioners who desire to refine or expand their practice in a structured academic program may enroll in the M.A. in Elementary Education or Secondary Education Program for Licensed Teachers. Our graduate programs of studies help practicing teachers acquire or expand the knowledge, skills and leadership capacities.
