Teaching, Learning and Culture (TLAC) encompasses students, faculty and staff whose efforts and interests center on the many different aspects of academics, teaching and classroom education. TLAC’s mission is to create experiences that advance teaching, research and service through the application of knowledge in the preparation and development of quality educators; placing high value on collaboration, diversity, critical thinking, creativity, democratic governance and global leadership.

Having two highly-ranked graduate programs within one department serves as an index of the world-class academic programs and faculty who are committed to a culture of excellence in research and discovery, and the scholarship of teaching.

“One of the things that set this program apart is that it is located within the Teaching, Learning & Culture Department at Texas A&M. There’s more to teaching than just delivering a curriculum or instructional strategy; we have to consider the influence that culture has one what we do.”

Howdy! My name is Jose Medina, and I’m an Interdisciplinary Studies major with a concentration in 4-8 Language Arts and Social Studies. I’m from San Antonio, Texas which means I love the spurs and Mexican food. My time here at Texas A&M has taught me that I have a passion for shaping the lives of younger people, and I hope to accomplish that in the near future. In addition to wanting to teach, I’m an aspiring coach with the hopes of one day moving into administration on the education or athletic side of things.

When not in class, I’m always finding ways to be active whether it be running outside or playing basketball with my friends. Other than that, I like to read daily articles involving the political landscape of the U.S. and other countries.

This is my second semester as a UPM, and I can’t wait to work alongside Professor Karmaniolou in her INST 362 class.
