The UTeach Natural Sciences program combines deep content knowledge in STEM fields with cutting-edge, research-driven STEM education courses to prepare future teachers.
Undergraduate students interested in teaching at the secondary level in STEM fields have the option to pursue a teaching option degree in the College of Natural Sciences. Requirements for this rigorous, 4-year degree plan include certification. Alternatively, students may keep their major (in any college) and take the coursework required for certification.
Certification requirements are the same for degree holders. If you already hold an undergraduate degree, see the Degree Holders page for information about applying to UTeach.
Certifications are available at the middle school and high school levels.
In addition to content courses listed under the links above, students complete the UTeach professional development sequence.
