Master of Arts in Teaching (M.A.T)
The Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) is formally offered by the School of Professional Development and is not part of the Physics Graduate Program. This degree prepares students with a BA degree in a physical science or engineering for the New York State certification as a secondary school teacher. This program addresses the widely known shortage of well trained high school physics teachers. Students should apply directly to the School of Professional Development . Students with a physics background generally take special physics course for teachers and work closely with Professor Robert McCarthy to prepare a program of study.
