M.S. in Adolescent Education and Special Education (Dual Certification Grades 7-12)
The M.S. in Adolescent Education and Special Education (Dual Certification, Grades 7-12) program at the College of Mount Saint Vincent is designed for career changers or recent college graduates who wish to receive a New York State teaching license.
This 14-month accelerated program consists of 45 credits and blends vital academic content with practical classroom teaching experience through a Teaching Fellows residency program. Fellows are paired with a classroom mentor-teacher. Teaching Fellows work alongside their mentors in a grade-appropriate classroom, attend school-based staff meetings and professional development seminars, and assume instructional responsibilities as assigned. Before starting classroom-based activities in the fall, all Teaching Fellows attend a College of Mount Saint Vincent summer institute designed to provide the professional knowledge and skills upon which to build a successful career in education.
Successful completion of this program and required license exams lead to a Master’s degree plus two teaching licenses covering grades 7-12: one is in a content area such as Biology, English, History or Mathematics, and the other is in Special Education.
The College is committed to reducing tuition cost through several scholarship opportunities. Apply now and learn how truly affordable the Mount is.
