Become a Teacher

VolsTeach is a program that emphasizes early and on-going field based experiences while students are working to attain a bachelor degree in math or a science.

VolsTeach targets undergraduate math, science, or engineering majors who are interested in expanding their professional skills and exploring a career in secondary teaching. Without any additional credit hours, students can graduate in four years with a degree in math, science, or engineering, as well as obtain licensure as highly qualified teachers in their respective content areas. The program emphasizes early and ongoing field-based experiences.

The Tennessee Department of Education endorses the VolsTeach program to prepare highly qualified teachers to meet state and federal guidelines.
