Adolescent General Education, MST

Graduate Program Information

New York City and Westchester Campus

The MST in Adolescent Education program prepares candidates to become knowledgeable to teach subject-specific content to all adolescent students, including students with disabilities and those who are culturally and linguistically diverse.

Candidates will engage in a 30-credit program that provides content and practices appropriate to inclusive classrooms, and provides candidates with clinically-enhanced experiences throughout the program. This program will lead to certification in adolescent education in a content area.

Prerequisites

Criteria for full admission include bachelor’s degree or higher from an accredited institution, undergraduate GPA of 3.0 or above, submission and review of official undergraduate transcripts documenting completion of Pace distribution requirements for the liberal arts and sciences, positive recommendations, a major or concentration in the liberal arts and sciences and no more than 6 credits of deficiencies in required coursework. Upon the recommendation of the Director of Student Support Services or program coordinators, candidates whose GPA is less than 3.0 may be admitted on a conditional/provisional basis, provided that it is determined that the candidate has the necessary knowledge and skills to complete the program successfully. 

We require the GRE-Graduate Record Examination-General Test. Performance on the GRE will not outweigh the other required criteria in your application.

Graduate Program Curriculum (30 credits)

The program will include a total of 100 hours of fieldwork, in addition to one (1) semester one student teaching.
