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 educational settings 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 licensure to graduate students.

Teaching practitioners who desire to refine or expand their practice in a structured academic program may enroll in the Master of Arts (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. A graduate concentration in Mathematics, Science and Educational Technology (MSET) is available in the M.A. in Elementary Education and Secondary Education. We also offer an online M.A. in Elementary Education or Secondary Education.

Post-master’s degree candidates may pursue advanced studies in teaching, learning, and teacher development in the Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) or Doctor of Education (Ed.D.) in Teaching, Learning, and Teacher Education. An Education Specialist (Ed.Spc.) certificate in Curriculum and Instruction is also available.

The M.A., Ed.D., and Ed. Spc. in Educational Leadership are designed to prepare individuals to assume leadership positions in complex educational organizations. All programs rely heavily on concepts drawn from the social sciences for insight into leadership behavior and the advancement of leadership skills and capacities.
