About UTeach – Pan American

UTeach – Pan American is a four-year, teacher preparation program for science and math majors modeled after the nationally recognized UTeach program established at The University of Texas at Austin in 1997. UTeach – Pan American’s first cohort of students, selected in summer 2012, will enroll in STEP 1: INQUIRY APPROACHES TO TEACHING (UTCH 1101) in fall 2012 and STEP 2: INQUIRY-BASED LESSON DESIGN (UTCH 1102) in spring 2013.

Students in both courses will spend a portion of their time in a public school classroom as they begin to learn how to teach. Before acceptance into the STEP 1 course, students must:

  • complete the criminal background check required by the school district and
  • provide evidence they have been tested for TB (tuberculosis) and had the test results evaluated.
