Adolescence Education- Master's
Teachers committed to making a difference in the lives of children can focus on their important formative years with a Master’s in Adolescence Education. If you wish to work with students as they transition from childhood to adulthood (generally, middle school into high school) - this is the degree to consider.
This program is appropriate if you have completed the requirements for Initial Adolescence Certification. You should possess a bachelor’s degree with 36 credit hours in the academic discipline. The Adolescence Education program provides the coursework and hands-on training you need for teacher certification in grades 7-12. Choose from certification in ten disciplines at the adolescence level: English, mathematics, social studies, French, German, Spanish, biology, chemistry, physics and business.
You will gain real world experience through field placements and student teaching in diverse educational settings. You will have the opportunity to earn your initial teaching certification as you earn your master’s degree, allowing you to teach in New York State.
Specifically designed for teaching adolescents, the innovative curriculum immerses you in the classroom and integrates theory, practice, and content into daily teaching and learning.
