Urban Teaching Residency Master’s & Certification Program

Part of our Executive Education Programs

The Urban Teaching Residency Master’s & Certification Program is open to Teach For America corps members and educators working in schools who wish to pursue a Master of Science in Education (M.S.Ed.). Students may choose certifications in elementary, middle year, or secondary grades, content area specializations, and an additional special education certification. The program began as a partnership of Penn GSE, the Pennsylvania Department of Education, and the Teach for America Greater Philadelphia Region. In the 2017 expansion, the Urban Teaching Residency Program opens to support working educators beyond the TFA program.
