The Adolescence Education Program provides individuals who have a baccalaureate degree in a content subject the opportunity to become initially certified to teach that subject in grades 7-12 in New York. The program provides courses and experiences in pedagogy, assessment, curriculum, and other topics that prepare individuals to be effective teachers.
Field experiences include a 30 hour tutoring program, an intensive field experience in the semester(s) prior to student teaching, and a semester-long full-time student teaching experience. Candidates in this program can pursue certification in English, math, social studies, French, Spanish, biology, chemistry, physics and earth science.
Those preparing to teach math, languages or a science subject may be eligible to benefit from the new federal TEACH Grant program and/or the New York State Math & Science Teaching Incentive. See the Other Sources of Aid page for more information.
