Combined Bachelor of Arts (B.A.)/Master of Science for Teachers (M.S.T.) in Adolescence Education
Our Combined Program Allows You To:
- Be eligible for initial certification immediately upon graduation. After three years of teaching, one of which is mentored, you will be eligible for professional certification.
- Have an undergraduate degree in your choice of content area, which is not true of the four year education programs.
- Be fully qualified with a professional degree in geology, history, English, chemistry, etc. (in case you decide not to teach).
- Not have to worry about completing a master's degree at night or during the summers within five years.
- Save money by paying undergraduate tuition rates for graduate courses during the eighth semester. These credits will count toward both degrees.
- Finish the master's in one year, instead of two, saving a full year of graduate tuition.
- Be considered a much more qualified candidate for a teaching position than a person with a four year degree. Graduates will have a professional degree with extensive education courses at the graduate level.
- Be more likely to get teaching positions.
Combined M.S.T. programs are only available at a few colleges. SUNY Plattsburgh is one of those.
