A Model Program for Teacher Preparation
The UCSB Teacher Education Program was 1 of 6 model programs in California named as "California's assets" in the governor's State Educator Excellence Task Force report Greatness by Design: Supporting Outstanding Teaching to Sustain the Golden State.
The Teacher Education Program offers a M.Ed. with emphasis in Teaching and Credential Programs for elementary, secondary and special education teaching.
Few programs provide the kinds of experiences, individual attention, and close collaborations with schools that we have here. An entire academic year of well-supported teaching is rare in a program. It also means a full-time commitment. In the end, our graduates walk out of one of the most acclaimed programs in the country, and walk into their first year classrooms ready to teach. Our graduates are in high demand. If you want to be exceptional, love your work, and feel like you are making a difference, start here at UCSB. There has never been a more urgent need for excellent teachers.
We recommend applicants interested in applying to the program attend an information meeting as soon as possible, as applicants may need at least one year to complete the university, program, and state requirements required for admission.
RSVP is encouraged; however reservations are not required for the on-campus meetings. If you have further questions, please contact the TEP Office: firstname.lastname@example.org or (805) 893-2084.
Nobody shapes the world like a teacher. Come learn more about our program and how to apply.
