UTeach prepares science and engineering undergraduate students to become licensed middle school or high school teachers. Our mission is to attract a wide range of bright science and engineering undergraduate students to the STEM teaching minor to give them the experience and mentoring needed to become confident, effective, and engaging educators. UTeach is an innovative model for undergraduate STEM teacher preparation that was developed at the University of Texas Austin over 15 years ago. UTeach UMass Lowell was launched in Spring 2012 under a $1.6 million Massachusetts Department of Education grant.
If you have ever considered becoming a math or science teacher, then UTeach UMass Lowell could be for you!
There is a critical need for highly-qualified STEM teachers, and the need is growing over the next decade. UTeach is designed to give science, mathematics and engineering undergraduates the opportunity to earn an initial teaching license while pursuing a bachelor degree.
