UHD is the ideal place to prepare for a successful urban teaching career. University of Houston-Downtown is the most culturally diverse institution of higher learning in the state. Our enrollment reflects the city, giving us an edge in developing a program that works for urban schools. We are currently working with nine school districts:
As the minority populations in Texas and Houston continue to grow, so will the need for teachers who are bilingual and sensitive to cultural diversity. The local demand for teachers reflects a nationwide trend: student enrollments are increasing while the supply of qualified teachers is declining.
A teacher trained at UHD will be required to master the core courses plus the specialization courses for the certification being sought. You'll master the subject you teach and know a variety of methods and technologies to help each student.
From the beginning, you'll be learning in the field...in inner-city schools. During three semesters in these Houston public schools, faculty from UHD, working with outstanding inner-city teachers, will make sure you receive "real world" knowledge and skills.
