Graduate Program Information

Westchester Campus

The MST in Adolescent General 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.


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 SPA 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.
