Urban Teaching

The University of Chicago Urban Teacher Education Program (UChicago UTEP) is a two-year master's degree program that awards a Master of Arts in Teaching as well as state certification.  The tracks offered are elementary education (K-8), high school mathematics (6-12), and high school biology (6-12).  Undergraduate students can apply for this program during their third year in the College. Admitted students begin the joint degree program in their fourth year by taking a three-quarter Foundations of Education sequence. They then continue with a fifteen-month graduate program that includes substantial clinical work in local Chicago public schools, including the University of Chicago Charter School campuses.
