(Jan. 25, 2010)--The UTSA Academy for Teacher Excellence will host information sessions for the Accelerated Teacher Education Program (A-TEP) at 6 p.m., Tuesday, Jan. 26 in Main Building Room 0.204 on the UTSA Main Campus and Tuesday, Feb. 9 in Buena Vista Street Building Room 1.322 at the UTSA Downtown Campus.

A-TEP is a transition-to-teaching program funded by the Department of Education. The comprehensive teacher preparation program prepares and certifies mathematics, science and special education teachers.

Prerequisites for the program are:

  • Bachelor's degree in math or science, or a degree in a math- or science-related field of study or a human services or human-related field of study
  • 24 credit hours in the content area for which student is seeking certification (with 12 hours of upper-level course work in math or science)
  • 3.0 G.P.A. for the last 60 hours completed

The Academy for Teacher Excellence was established as a hub for school districts, community colleges and UTSA to collaboratively research, design, implement and evaluate educational programs that address emerging, statewide and local educational issues associated with a growing diverse student population. A major focus is the implementation of a Title V Hispanic Serving Institutions grant to leverage resources in the community to better prepare teachers in classrooms with a diverse student population.

To register for an information session, e-mail ate@utsa.edu with the name and date of the scheduled information session. For more information, call 210-458-6170 or 210-458-6174.

UTSA makes the grade with a strong core curriculum

UTSA prides itself on giving students a well-rounded education. Combining a top-tier academic program with opportunities for personal growth prepares students to compete in a global economy. And that's not all. They learn to be informed and engaged citizens as well. At the heart of that academic program is an award-winning core curriculum.

For four consecutive years, UTSA has received an A-rating from the American Council of Trustees and Alumni for the caliber of its core curriculum. According to ACTA, UTSA requires its students to take six of the seven courses deemed "crucial" to a well-rounded education: composition, literature, U.S. government or history, economics, mathematics and science. Only a handful of other institutions in the U.S. are giving students these tools, which are needed to succeed in careers and the community.

Did you know? UTSA is one of only three Texas institutions and 23 in the United States to receive the highest rating for its core curriculum in the 2014-2015 edition of the ACTA's "What Will They Learn?" report.
