Undergraduate Teacher Education Pathway (UTEP)
The School of Education is committed to the development of teacher candidates who will be both educators and lifelong learners. Teacher preparation that focuses on the unique challenges of working in NYC public school classrooms is at the core of Hunter College’s educational mission, and the School of Education is a place for aspiring teachers to learn their craft and contribute to the future through the classroom.
Prior to declaring your Education major, the School of Education invites interested students to attend an information session to learn more about the requirements of the major. Students then complete an interest form, are screened for eligibility, and may be invited to participate in an interview with faculty. Seats in our Education majors are limited. Unfortunately, not all eligible students are offered a seat in an education major. Prospective education students are encouraged to attend an information session early in the semester for consideration to join the major in the following semester. During the information session, candidates will learn about both the undergrad major, and the graduate programs in education.
All education majors are required to have a primary School of Arts & Sciences major and must fulfill the Hunter Core requirements. Graduates will also fulfill the academic requirements for New York State Initial Certification.
