CalTeach summer programs include opportunities to participate in a campus research lab, tutor students from local districts, or get a head start on the CalTeach minor by taking a class through Summer Sessions.
Summer Research Institute
The CalTeach Summer Institute draws students from across the UC system to participate in research experiences on the Berkeley campus. Students spend most of their time working with faculty or post-doc research mentors, and also participate in a weekly seminar series that explores how to bring research methods into middle and high school classrooms. This course, UGIS 189, satisfies the CalTeach minor research methods requirement.
Sponsored by the National Science Foundation, Summer Internships are paid summer tutoring opportunities for undergraduates interested in education.
CalTeach offers UGIS 82: K–8 Teaching and Inquiry-Based Lesson Design in the Science and Mathematics Classroom and EDUC 130: Knowing and Learning in Mathematics and Science during the summer. This is a great way to engage in math and science teaching with younger students and explore what the CalTeach program has to offer. Please visit the Summer Sessions site for information on summer courses at Berkeley.
Our five-course minor is designed to be completed along side your STEM (science, technology, engineering, or math) degree.
Students who complete the minor are eligible to apply for the CalTeach Credential program, a unique opportunity to graduate with both a degree and a teaching credential.
