Pursue Your Calling ...

This program is designed for teacher certification candidates who wish to teach and become certified at the same time. Teacher candidates must have earned a baccalaureate degree from an accredited college or university. In addition, the candidate must teach for two years in an urban public school or public charter school. During this teaching appointment, UMSL will provide the necessary coursework to earn teacher certification within two years. Many teacher candidates complete additional coursework and earn a Master's degree in Elementary or Secondary Education.

The program includes online courses and a school-based internship. Program courses are offered over a 2-year cycle and are designed in a modular format as opposed to discrete course silos.

Why Choose Teach Residency?

  • Convenient, fast, and affordable
