New STEM Master’s Program Offered in Collaboration with UTeach

The College of Education’s STEM Education Graduate Program is pleased to announce the creation of GradUTeach, a master’s program designed to prepare students for high school and middle school science and math teacher certification.  

Dr. Catherine Riegle-Crumb, director of STEM Education, said, “Our new GradUTeach program is a collaboration between UTeach, a nationally recognized preservice teacher program that originated at UT Austin and has been replicated in more than 20 states, and our renowned graduate-level program in STEM Education. Our program faculty are well-known and accomplished leaders in research on equitable learning and engagement in STEM Education and bring their expertise to this exciting new program.” 

By the end of the two-year, in-person program, students will graduate with a Master of Arts degree in STEM Education and be prepared for teaching certification. GradUTeach faculty will work with students to find them employment as teaching assistants in the College of Natural Sciences. These positions will cover all tuition and fees and provide a monthly income stipend. 

Prospective students are encouraged to apply online at ApplyTexas beginning March 23 for admission to the Fall 23 cohort. A letter of interest, two-three letters of recommendation and postsecondary transcripts are required. Applicants must have an undergraduate degree in a STEM content area (e.g., math, biology, physics, engineering) and have a minimum GPA of 3.0.
