Urban Teacher Residency – TESOL (MA)
Welcome to the Urban Teacher Residency – TESOL (MA) program home page. Use this page as a guide to the program from acceptance to graduation.
The Urban Teacher Residency (UTR) program, a partnership between Hunter College, New Visions for Public Schools, and the New York City Department of Education, is an 18-month teacher preparation residency program that integrates the graduate coursework of the aspiring teacher with intensive, hands-on experiences in New York City schools. The program consists of a residency year in which students are fully immersed in a host school alongside an experienced mentor teacher and an induction year in which they are hired as a full-time teacher of record. Tuition costs are subsidized at approximately 50% and students are not responsible for any tuition payments until their second year in the program. Upon successful completion of the program, students will earn a master’s degree and are eligible for New York State initial certification.
The program advisor will notify students of their cohort’s particular course of study before registering for classes. Course sequence is subject to change. To view course descriptions, progress standards and exit requirements visit the catalog.
