Teacher Education Program
UCLA's Teacher Education Program (TEP) prepares aspiring teachers to become social justice educators in urban settings. TEP strives to provide excellence in pre-service education and to improve urban schooling for California’s racially, culturally, and linguistically diverse children.
Our goals are:
- to prepare teachers with the commitment, capacity and resilience to promote social justice, caring and anti-racism in urban schools
- to support aspiring, novice and experienced teachers in acquiring the knowledge, skills and dispositions needed to provide rigorous academic content and high quality learning experiences to K-12 students in urban schools
- prepare graduates as transformative professionals in urban schools and communities
To serve a wide range of aspiring and accomplished educators, TEP offers several program options leading to a preliminary Teaching Credential and/or Master of Education degree. You can find more information about the Teacher Education Program at the TEP Website.
