|University Partnership: The University of Chicago Urban Teacher Education Program|
City Year is proud to partner with The University of Chicago Urban Teacher Education Program, a leading teacher preparation program preparing teachers of the highest caliber for Chicago Public Schools while empirically testing a model for urban teacher preparation, offering approximately 50% in tuition reduction during the second year, when candidates are full-time.
The University of Chicago Urban Teacher Education Program prepares teachers of the highest caliber for Chicago Public Schools while empirically testing a model for urban teacher preparation. Our graduates engage in teaching as a highly intellectual career and are classroom-based instructional leaders and agents for educational equity in their schools and community. UChicago UTEP is a two-year graduate program accredited by the Illinois State Board of Education that awards a Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) degree. Alumni then receive up to three years of post-graduation supports, making UChicago UTEP a unique five-year experience.
*Admitted students who defer are required to submit $250 as a tuition deposit and an additional $250 to defer; all monies will be credited toward tuition once they enroll.
