• FSU-Teach is specifically designed to prepare teachers of mathematics and the sciences to meet the needs of today's students.

• FSU-Teach trains scholars with a double major –one in a content area, such as biology or mathematics, and one in teaching – infour years.

• Tuition for the first two courses is paid throughthe program.

• Personal support is provided by master teachers (FSU faculty members who are teaching veterans), mentor teachers (local K-12 teachers) and FSU-Teach faculty.

2 Majors. 4 Years.

A Lifetime of Opportunity


Launched in 2007 and seeing consistent increases in enrollment, FSU-Teach is administered jointly by the College of Education and the College of Arts and Sciences at Florida State. The program is modeled after UTeach, the highly successful program at the University of Texas at Austin. FSU-Teach is funded by one of only 12 grants awarded to U.S. colleges and universities by the National Math and Science Initiative (NMSI) and the Helios Foundation.

FSU-Teach scholars hail from disciplines including mathematics, biology, chemistry, geosciences and physics. Students graduate with two majors in four years, one in the content area and one in education. The unique nature of the program provides students hands-on classroom experience within their first two semesters.

Notably, FSU-Teach was one of the programs lauded in the President's recent remarks praising initiatives supported by the National Math and Science Initiative, Texas Instruments and the Dell Foundation that help prepare a new generation of math and science teachers.
