Make A Difference in the Lives of Young People!

Program Overview

The Undergraduate Teacher Education Program (UTEP) allows Harvard undergraduates to earn certification as a secondary teacher during their time at the College.

UTEP is a concise program, consisting of six required courses, and is designed to be completed in two back-to-back semesters.

Students gain experience both through fieldwork in local public school classrooms and through coursework at the Harvard Graduate School of Education.

Upon completing UTEP, students can obtain a teaching license that enables them to be employed in public school systems across the country.

Recent UTEP grads have gone on to teach in public schools, charter schools, private schools, and international schools. Others have pursued fellowships or graduate-level work in education. No matter the venue, UTEP graduates are making a difference in the lives of youth around the world.
