About CalTeach

CalTeach is a program for undergraduate majors interested in developing a deep understanding of STEM teaching & learning. Our coursework focuses on STEM pedagogy, educational theory and promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion, with concurrent field work in local classrooms and tutoring centers. Cal Teach offers a minor in Science and Math Education, as well as a unique opportunity to complete a California K-12 science or math teaching credential as an undergraduate simultaneously with their undergraduate degree.


CalTeach was proposed and funded in 2005 and began hosting courses in 2006. Over the next few years the program expanded its course offerings, and by 2010 the Science and Math Education minor had been fully implemented. That same year the experimental CalTeach Credential Program was approved. Also occurring in 2010 was the founding of Cal Teach's sister program for veteran teachers, Math for America Berkeley. These two programs together comprise the Berkeley Science and Math Initiative (BSMI).
