NYSED 30607/30608

Admissions to this program are currently on hold for the 2023-2024 application cycle. Program faculty are in the process of redesigning this program; the present Bulletin content refers to the version of the program that is on hold. This content will be updated when the program's redesign is complete.

This clinically rich master's degree program prepares candidates to teach mathematics as a content-area subject in grades 7 through 12.

The Transitional B program is an alternative teacher certification program. The New York State Transitional B Certificate permits eligible candidates to be employed as a classroom teacher in a New York state public school while completing a master's degree. Upon successful completion of this Transitional B program, graduates of the program qualify and are endorsed for New York state certification in Mathematics 7–12.

Otherwise qualified candidates who lack coursework in a specified area may be admitted conditionally, but must make up the content deficit prior to completion of the program. Attendance at an Adolescence M.S.T. information session is recommended.
