UTeach-Liberal Arts certifies students to teach middle or high school English, Languages Other Than English, Social Studies, or History.  Our graduates are extremely prepared to enter the teaching profession:

Classroom Experience

The UTeach-Liberal Arts program emphasizes practical, hands-on field experience in public school classrooms throughout the length of the program.  Each of our graduates emerges from the program with four semesters of observations and apprentice teaching, including:

  • 10 hours in an elementary school (7 observations, 3 teaches)
  • 20 hours in a middle school (16 observations, 4 teaches)
  • 45 hours in a high school (36 observations, 9 teaches)
  • One semester of full-time apprentice teaching in a high school or middle school

During their practice teaching, students receive feedback not only from their mentor teacher, but also from university observers who are master teachers with decades of classroom experience.

Strong Knowledge Base

Our students receive instruction from experienced master teachers at The University of Texas at Austin in pedagogy tailored to their subject area, and design all the lessons that they practice-teach.  All our students major in the subject area they are going to teach and thus have high content knowledge.   They also take coursework in Individual Differences and in Adolescent Development.
