Become a Teacher


As California experiences a shortage of teachers with backgrounds in math, science, bilingual education, and special education, as well as with identities that better reflect the increasing diversity and multiculturalism of today's K-12 students, there is no greater time than now to become a transformative educator.  At SJSU and the Lurie College of Education, we have numerous pathways for you to start or continue your journey towards pursuing equity and social justice in education.  Based on your current level of education, choose one of the 3 pathways below to learn more about the academic opportunities available.

If at any time you'd like to learn more about our academic opportunities or need additional support with your application or academic advising, please contact our SJSU Lurie College of Education Student Success Center in Sweeney Hall 106 at 408-924-2700 or luriecollege-successcenter@sjsu.edu and our outreach team will happily assist you!
