Combined Bachelor's-Master's Programs for Teacher Certification
Current Stony Brook undergraduate students are eligible to enroll in combined Bachelor's/Master of Arts in Teaching degree programs
Stony Brook offers a number of combined undergraduate/graduate degree programs through collaborations between the College of Arts and Sciences, the School of Professional Development (SPD), and the Graduate School. These programs allow current Stony Brook undergraduate students with special talent and motivation to earn a Master of Arts in Teaching degree in less time and at less expense than if they enrolled in two separate programs. Applicants to the combined programs are not required to submit an application fee or GRE scores.
SPD's combined BA or BS/MAT five-year programs lead to both degrees and certification in Adolescent Education in Foreign Language, Mathematics, Science or Social Studies. The BA or BS/MAT option is available to students who are matriculated in the following undergraduate degree programs: Applied Math/Statistics, Africana Studies, Biology, Chemistry, Earth Science, French, History, Italian, Mathematics, Physics, and Spanish.
Students may enter into one of SPD-sponsored programs as early as the beginning of their junior year. While some graduate study will take place prior to the last undergraduate semester, graduate status will commence with the eighth semester, and graduation with both degrees will usually occur after ten semesters of study. The total combined degree program will include 150 credits of study and save the student a minimum of one semester’s time and graduate tuition.
Teacher preparation candidates must also complete certification workshops in child abuse, substance abuse, and school violence. In addition, they must be fingerprinted. Stony Brook offers these workshops monthly. See Certification and Licensing Workshops for details.
