Master of Arts in Teaching

Students at Union College can become certified to teach at the secondary school level through a five-year, combined degree graduate program in cooperation with Clarkson University (Capital Region Campus). Students can be certified to teach grades 7-12 in the following academic areas: English, languages (Chinese, French, German, Greek, Latin, and Spanish), mathematics, science (biology, chemistry, earth science, physics, and general science), social studies, and technology.

Program and faculty advisors will meet with students throughout their program to plan how to best meet these criteria through a variety of courses and experiences. Upon successful completion of the M.A.T. program and verification of meeting the criteria for certification, students will be recommended by Clarkson University for New York State certification (many other states have reciprocity agreements with New York).
