Urban Teacher Education Program

Welcome to the Urban Teacher Education Program (UTEP)

The Urban Teacher Education Program (UTEP) is experience-rich, field-based and leads to teacher licensing in selected areas through undergraduate and graduate programs, Option I and Option II respectively.

  • Designed for graduate students who have obtained degrees from accredited institutions in subjects other than education. This option offers the opportunity for graduate students to do a year long internship in an urban setting and obtain certification in a secondary education field.

UTEP is committed to the development of "star" urban teachers as supported by the research on effective teaching in urban schools. The program ensures that pre-service teachers are exposed to best practice in urban teaching, through the collaborative mentorship of school-based and university-based faculty members.

Graduates of the program are given first consideration in hiring by the urban districts of East Chicago, Gary, and Hammond.

I live in Philadelphia. I don't want to leave, at least not yet. I am a teacher with a Masters and want to get into Education research with an emphasis on public policy and historical forces that have created the large unsuccessful urban schools that we know today. I went to Berkeley as an undergraduate and went to Holy Names College, you probably never heard of it, for my credential and Masters. People always screw their eyes up when they read my resume and wonder why I didn't go to a better University for my masters. I tell them their program fit my schedule best. I am really torn between preparing to apply to schools like Penn or Princeton because of their prestige factor or applying to Temple, which is not bad just not as prestigious
