Department of Education

The Department of Education is a recognized leader in the field of education and in the preparation of high-quality educators. In a state audit in the fall of 2014, our undergraduate Educator Preparation Program was found to be in compliance in all areas and maintained our status as a state-approved educator preparation program. In addition, the program received the following state commendation:

"TEA wishes to commend the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor for consistently providing candidates with field experiences that far exceed (both pre-student teaching and during student teaching) those required by Texas Administrative Code."

Through the undergraduate program, the Department of Education partners with local school districts in preparing, recruiting, and retaining highly qualified teachers. Our master's and doctoral programs facilitate the development of outstanding administrators and interventionists to work in both urban and rural communities in the State of Texas.

The faculty contribute to achieving our objectives by expandng knowledge through teaching and learning, research and publication, service and outreach.

Student Testimonial

Being a first year teacher is one of the hardest things I have encountered. I would not be able to overcome the obstacles that being a first year teacher brings without my education from UMHB. I am extremely thankful for for the education program at UMHB, the professors, and the amount of hours that we put in before taking on our own classroom. Thank you for the way that you prepare us! - Hannah Dunlap
