Undergraduate AdmissionsThe UTeach-Liberal Arts undergraduate program is designed for liberal arts students who wish to become certified for secondary education in a liberal arts field. The program consists of at least four long-semesters of rigorous coursework and each semester requires field placements in local schools. Since the undergraduate program takes a minimum of four long-semesters to complete, sophomore year is the ideal time to begin the program. The Undergraduate Program emphasizes the UTeach-Liberal Arts philosophy of early and consistent field experience in public school classrooms.
