This masters program is intended for students who have earned a bachelor's degree in biology, chemistry, geosciences, or physics (or equivalent) and who wish to earn a certificate to teach in grades 7-12 in NYS public schools. This accelerated (15 month) program will provide all of the required course work, field experiences and student teaching as well as selected courses in the content areas so that graduates will be eligible for both initial and professional certification in the science discipline in their first degree. This provides an opportunity to fulfill a regional need for qualified science teachers from nontraditional sources such as content majors or individuals considering a second career.
