Cal Teach summer programs include opportunities to participate in a campus research lab, tutor students from local districts, or get a head start on the Cal Teach minor by taking a class through Summer Sessions.
Summer Research Institute
The Cal Teach 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 Cal Teach minor research methods requirement.
Sponsored by the National Science Foundation, Summer Internships are paid summer tutoring opportunities for undergraduates interested in education.
Cal Teach offers UGIS 82: K–8 Teaching and Inquiry-Based Lesson Design in the Science and Mathematics Classroom during the summer. This is a great way to engage in math and science teaching with younger students, explore what the Cal Teach program has to offer, and satisfy the prerequisite requirement for EDUC 130 to get a head start on the Cal Teach minor. 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 Cal Teach Credential program, a unique opportunity to graduate with both a degree and a teaching credential.
