About

Developmental Education (Developmental Literacy Concentration) at Texas State University prepares future scholars, researchers, leaders, administrators, instructors, and practitioners in the field of developmental education.

Overview

Developmental Education (Developmental Literacy Concentration) at Texas State University aims to advance theory, research, and practice in multiple areas of developmental education — including developmental literacy, learning support, and developmental mathematics — by actively engaging students in teaching, scholarship, and professional service. As a multidisciplinary program, the faculty, staff, and students work collaboratively across various academic disciplines, diverse communities, and geographic boundaries.

Advising

Advising takes three forms: the initial advisor, the program mentor, and the dissertation advisor. When students are first admitted, they are assigned an initial advisor who mentors them from entry through their first year benchmarks in the program. 

\By the end of the first year, students formally ask a faculty member to be their program mentor who advises them from the end of their first year until their comprehensive exams. At a time no later than the completion of their comprehensive exams, students then select a dissertation advisor who is the chair of their dissertation committee, which must be formed at that time. These advising roles can be assumed by the same faculty member or different faculty members depending on students’ research interests and foci.

Programme Structure

Courses include:

  • Understanding Learners in Developmental Education Contexts
  • Policy and Politics in Developmental Education
  • Teaching and Learning in Developmental Education
  • Diversity in P-16 Educational Contexts
