Welcome to Cal Teach
at UC Santa Cruz!

UCSC Cal Teach is part of a system-wide University of California program for undergraduate science, math, and engineering majors with the goal to increase the number and retention of highly qualified math and science teachers, especially in high-need California public schools. UCSC's program offers K-12 internships, coursework, academic and career advising, teacher professional development and mentoring, and other support for prospective and novice teachers. Successful Cal Teach interns may apply for merit fellowships to attend UCSC's combined Master of Arts in education and teaching credential program.
