Adolescence brings many challenges and adjustments for students in grades 7-12. Central to the success of these students are teachers armed with the knowledge, skills and commitment to student development that, when combined, foster achievement.
To prepare teacher-candidates for professional certification for careers in middle and high school education, SUNY College at Old Westbury offers the Master of Science in Teaching in Adolescence Education: Social Studies (7-12).
All M.S. degrees share general admissions requirements, a pedagogical core, and a content core by discipline specialization. These degrees are designed for candidates seeking both a Master’s degree and professional certification in Adolescence Education.
Pedagogical training and content specialization are equally emphasized in this degree program, which is offered jointly by the School of Education and the History Department of the School of Arts and Sciences.
