GWTeach is The George Washington University's only undergraduate program preparing Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) majors to become the next generation of great teachers. While working towards their bachelor's degree students take part in classroom field experiences under the mentorship of master teachers and classroom teachers. Students who complete all the GWTeach Program requirements earn their bachelors in their chosen STEM field, a minor in STEM teaching, and licensure as a middle or high school teacher.

GWTeach is modeled after the UTeach program, a nationally modeled program that started at the University of Texas, Austin which expects to produce more than 8,000 secondary math and science teachers by 2020.  GWTeach's first two introductory courses Step 1 and Step 2 are open to all STEM majors including pre-med students at no tuition cost, providing students a pathway to "test out" teaching as a profession. Field experiences throughout the program allow students to practice teaching in real classrooms throughout DC.
