The Los Angeles Urban Teacher Residency (LAUTR) is an intensive program that leads to earning a teaching credential and master’s degree at California State University Los Angeles (CSULA). The program offers three credential pathways: 1) Blended Elementary and Special Education, 2) Special Education with STEM Specialization Secondary Level, 3) Single-subject in Math or Science (biology, chemistry, and physics). Designed to equip future teachers to close the achievement gap in high-need urban schools, this 18 to 24 month graduate-level program follows an apprenticeship model that allows teacher residents to co-teach alongside outstanding mentor teachers for an entire school year.

All applicants must first attend an Information Session.
