About UTeach Natural Sciences

UTeach Graduates to DateUTeach started at The University of Texas at Austin in 1997 as a new way to prepare secondary teachers in STEM fields (science, technology, engineering and mathematics). Its strength lies in the unique collaboration between the Colleges of Natural Sciences and Education. If you are an undergraduate who wants to teach, a college graduate who wants to return for certification, or a new teacher who wants a supportive community, then UTeach is for you.

The UTeach program offers students a variety of educational experiences. For example, all students enrolled in the UTeach Natural Sciences Program have the opportunity to participate in a paid internship.
