What courses will you take?
You will begin with the experiential learning course Exploring Teaching and Learning in STEM, which provides you with early-guided teaching experience in a middle school classroom. As you progress through the STEM teaching minor, you will gain further experience teaching in high school classrooms, including arranging and taking students out on a field trip.
UTeach courses are specifically focused on learning to teach math, science and engineering content using the inquiry-based approach known as the 5Es (Engage, Explore, Explain, Elaborate and Evaluate).
The UTeach STEM teaching minor offers the opportunity for you to earn an initial teaching license and is open to students enrolled in a bachelor's degree program in one of the following STEM fields:
- Kennedy College of Sciences: biology, chemistry, computer science, mathematics and physics
- Francis College of Engineering: chemical, civil, computer, mechanical or plastics engineering
