Welcome from the Dean

WELCOME FROM DR. MICHAEL A. DE MIRANDA


Howdy!

Welcome to the College of Education and Human Development!

True to the Land-Grant Act and mission signed by Abraham Lincoln on July 2, 1862 “to educate people…”, the College of Education and Human Development at Texas A&M University remains at the epicenter of excellence in advancing pedagogy, discovery and research in the areas of education, health and human resource development.

As a college, we are comprised of four signature academic departments, and you’ll quickly discover that the quality of our undergraduate and graduate degree programs is closely tied to a world-class faculty and their diverse research interests — a catalyst for innovation in teaching and translational research to solve real-world challenges.

Among public institutions, we are the largest producer of educators throughout the State of Texas in the high-need fields of math and science. Our graduates in the fields of health, kinesiology and human resource development have enjoyed rewarding careers both across the nation and around the globe. We also take pride in those earning their master’s or doctoral degree through our on-campus and online programs. Many of these already hold, or are pursuing, leadership positions in the fields of education, medicine, business, sports and so much more.

Our college is ranked among the best in the nation and as you navigate our website, I hope you will gain the sense of commitment we have to delivering extraordinary, high impact learning experiences for our students. Whether it be through our world-class academic and administrative professional staff, our faculty, our facilities or even the extraordinary learning opportunities we provide, you’ll gain much more than a degree from Texas A&M. You will receive an academic and professional preparation well suited to meet the challenges that lie ahead, and you will be well-prepared to solve them.

In the College of Education and Human Development, we affirm and develop the potential in every one of our students; in fact, it is our expectation that the graduates of our college will become the next generation of leaders and change agents, transforming the lives of others in the communities they serve. I hope you too will respond to that call to Lead by Example as the thousands of Fightin’ Texas Aggies who have come before us and we look forward to meeting you soon.
