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.
