MAJOR: UTEACH NATURAL SCIENCES
UTeach Natural Sciences certifies secondary teachers (middle grades and senior grades) in math and science. Our very first course, "step 1", puts student teams in the classroom, teaching kids. Students get lots of hands-on guidance and help from our experienced master teachers so they can decide if teaching is right for them. "Step 1" is one credit hour, plus time in the field, and it's open to all UT students. Our program is also available to everyone. Students do not have to change their current major, but instead they can enroll in the courses for certification in addition to degree requirements. A UTeach advisor is available to help students plan out each semester; or, students can switch into a teaching option degree plan. That way, all of the requirements for a bachelor's of science and certification are part of the degree. Even students already in their junior or senior year can start the program, and finish it after graduation. For more information, current students may attend an information session.
