UOTeach is a graduate program that leads to a teaching license and a master’s of education degree in Curriculum and Teaching. The program offers two strands: Early Childhood/Elementary (Grades K-5) and Middle/High School (Grades 6-12). The full-time program begins once per year in summer and takes five terms (summer through the following summer term) to complete. It is a cohort-based program (students are taught as a community rather than as a collection of individuals) in which students take courses in a specified sequence.

For specific program and application information, explore this site. If you are visiting campus we hope you be sure to attend one of our monthly information sessions.

Why UOTeach?

  • Students have the opportunity to earn an English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) endorsement along with their elementary or secondary licensure.
  • Curriculum emphasizes cultural awareness, social justice and a commitment to preparing teachers to reach across barriers of race, sex, gender, and socio-economics and invite children to learn. 
  • Cohorts explore questions of how students learn, how culture affects the teaching and learning process, and the role of schools in either maintaining or challenging social injustice.
  • Subject-matter methods courses use best practices in planning, instruction, and assessment.
  • Courses are taught by faculty, who offer research-based best practices and the wisdom from successful K-12 practice.
  • Field work encompases the full academic year.
  • Seasoned mentors support students throughout their field experience.
