UTeach Liberal Arts

UTeach Liberal Arts is an innovative way of preparing liberal arts majors to teach grades four through twelve. The program, a collaboration among the College of Liberal Arts, the College of Education, and area school districts, seeks to attract interested students to explore teaching early in their undergraduate experience. Two paths are available, one leading to secondary certification, the other leading to middle grades certification. The goal of the program is to allow students to complete in four years both the bachelor's degree and the professional development coursework required for teacher certification.

Key features of the program are field experience, mentorship and seminar instruction, cohort support, discipline-specific training in literacy, and innovative use of technology. UTeach Liberal Arts students experience the public school classroom and teach progressively longer lessons with the guidance of a mentor teacher. By working with some of Texas's most respected secondary school teachers, students quickly learn whether they are suited for the teaching profession.

More information is available from UTeach Liberal Arts at (512) 232-2143.

Career Services

Liberal Arts Career Services offers career connections for liberal arts students, recent graduates, and employers. The goal of the office is to assist liberal arts students in their career development and to equip them with the practical skills required to master lifelong career decisions and professional growth.

Liberal Arts Career Services provides counseling, critiques résumés, arranges mock interviews, and conducts workshops on résumé writing, interviewing skills, and company research. Liberal Arts Career Services maintains a resource room with books, videotapes, company literature, and job postings, as well as one of the largest on-campus liberal arts recruitment programs in the country. Over three hundred companies are assisted by Liberal Arts Career Services each year through computer searches, information sessions, and on-campus interviewing. An annual résumé book is sent each fall to hundreds of employers. An on-line newsletter tells students about local, state, and national internship, part-time, and full-time professional opportunities and provides helpful career search information. Liberal Arts Career Services also sponsors special events, such as an annual Career Expo, Spend a Day with a Professional (a job-shadowing experience), Better Late than Jobless workshops in the spring, and an annual Law Fair.

As a complement to the assistance available from the college, the University Career Exploration Center provides career services to all students. The center offers professional assistance to students in choosing or changing their majors or careers, seeking an internship, and planning for graduate study.

Education Career Services, part of the College of Education, assists all University students who have completed a teacher certifcation program. Certification candidates must register with Education Career Services, George I. Sanchez Building 294, at the beginning of their student-teaching semester. The office also assists those who wish to find teaching jobs at the college level or in private schools, community colleges, or overseas schools in which certification is not required.

The University makes no promise to secure employment for each graduate.
