Certifications and Degrees
UTeach allows you to complete a rigorous degree in any field and qualify to teach middle or high school in a STEM field. Take a look at the side bar for certification areas.
Undergraduate students interested in teaching secondary STEM fields have two options with UTeach:
If you already hold an undergraduate degree, visit the Degree Holders section for information about applying to the UTeach program. Required certification course work for degree-holders is the same as for undergraduate students.
To complete the UTeach program:
- Choose a certification area and take the required content courses to qualify for that certification. If you are majoring in a STEM field, courses for certification may overlap with courses required for your degree. Your advisor can tell you which ones.
- Take the courses in the UTeach professional development sequence, which includes a semester of Apprentice Teaching.
- Build a portfolio with reflections and samples of your work from every UTeach course.
- Successfully complete a student teaching semester.
