The Doctor of Education in Curriculum and Instruction at UTRGV provides school districts throughout Texas and nationwide individuals with sufficient and specific expertise to formulate and lead P-16 programs. In addition, the degree enables successful candidates to teach in colleges and universities, many of which are faced with a shortage of qualified faculty. To this end, the degree provides a qualified pool of teacher educators for institutions of higher education throughout Texas and the nation. Below are the following specializations being offered: Bilingual Studies Specialization. Early Childhood Specialization. Educational Technology Specialization. Higher Education Teaching Specialization. Literacy Specialization. Mathematics Education Specialization. Science Education Specialization. The new class of doctoral students is intended to be a cohesive, supportive, interactive group of individuals engaged in intellectual inquiry with each other, their professors and selected educational practitioners. The courses, seminars, field experiences and other academic opportunities offered within the program are the vehicles through which this intellectual inquiry takes place. Each member is required to participate in activities and to contribute as a member of this community of scholars. The cohort proceeds as a group through a sequence of coursework, and research endeavors.
