The Colorado School of Mines (Mines) and University of Northern Colorado (UNC) created a unique program that offers a path towards secondary teaching licensure in science or math for Mines students. Teacher Education Alliance, Mines – UNC Partnership (TEAM-UP) is an integrated program which is pursued while completing your Mines’ degree. Mines is fully responsible for content preparation and UNC delivers the entire professional teacher education program. All coursework is either online or delivered on the Mines campus and all field experiences are within 50 miles of the Mines campus.
NOTE: Only students who have previously taken a TEAM-UP course are eligible to enroll in future TEAM-UP coursework.
