Our program is changing!

Beginning the 2017-18 academic year, the Penn GSE & Teach For America program is evolving into the Urban Teaching Residency Master’s & Certification Program. In addition to TFA corps members, the program will be open to educators working in schools who wish to pursue a Master of Science in Education (M.S.Ed.). Students may also choose certifications in elementary, middle year, or secondary grades, content area specializations, and an additional special education certification.

With a focus on urban teaching, the program is ideal for educators who:

  • Are deeply committed to ending educational inequality,
  • Desire to build the knowledge and skills that will help make an excellent education a reality for all children,  
  • Seek solid academic training and professional mentoring, and
  • Want to be part of a dynamic, top-tier University community.
