What is CalTeach? 

The UC Merced CalTeach program is designed to address the shortage of science and mathematics teachers in California's elementary, middle and secondary schools, particularly in the Central Valley region. This innovative program recruits and prepares mathematics and science majors for teaching careers by providing special coursework and field experiences in K-12 schools in the Central Valley, as well as direct pathways to a teaching credential in California. CalTeach at UC Merced offers two education minors, scholarships, and internships/externships.
