The pre-teaching minor is designed to prepare interested students with the skills they need for a successful career in teaching. It aligns with Clarkson's Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT), a one-year master's degree that leads to New York certification in most high school disciplines.
If you are pursuing a major in biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics, political science, computer science or engineering and aspire to teach these subjects to others, you should consider the pre-teaching minor and MAT.
The Clarkson MAT program, like all master’s level teacher education programs in New York, requires specific pre-requisites and high standards from applicants. Receiving the right guidance as an undergraduate will ensure you meet those standards and pre-requisites, increasing your chances of success.
