Where Theory Meets Practice
Our Teacher Preparation programs are working together to innovate and improve teacher education at UC Berkeley's GSE. As of fall 2017, prospective students will apply to the Berkeley Educators for Equity and Excellence Program (BE3), which will begin in summer 2018. The information currently on our teacher education websites for the MUSE, DTE, MACSME programs is for students who have already applied and will be starting in Summer 2017. Information about the 2018-19 BE3 program will be available August 1.
Becoming a Teacher
The Graduate School of Education offers unique credential programs that provide a deep examination of what education is (research and theory) and also how to do it (teaching in a classroom).
Our credential programs offer future teachers rigorous research in a specific subject area as an integral part of the preparation for being in a classroom.
By earning your master’s as well as a teaching credential, you are equipped with depth and breadth as you enter a K-12 school.
