COE, LAS Partner Up in New UCCS Teach Program

September 1, 2010

UCCS is starting a new teacher program.  UCCS Teach is a collaborative effort between the College of Education and the College of Letters, Arts and Sciences.  The program prepares and retains qualified math and science teachers.  Step 1, Beginning Field School Experience, the first class of the program began with 16 students. 

As part of the program, each of the students will have their first in class teaching experience and observations in the first semester.  They will be able to determine if teaching is right for them in a tuition-free, one hour course.  They will graduate in 4 years with a math or science degree and a secondary teaching license in math, biology, chemistry, computer science, or physics. 

UCCS Teach is a program that started from the Uteach program at the University of Texas at Austin.  UTeach has been replicated across the country and UCCS is the 22nd school to install the program.
