Master of Arts in Teaching: English
The Master of Arts in Teaching English (HEGIS 1501) is a course of study leading to
New York State certification for teaching English in the secondary schools (grades
7-12). In addition, Stony Brook offers an extension option for grades 5-6.
The program is designed for those who have little or no previous coursework in education
or formal classroom teaching experience.
In Stony Brook University's distributed teacher education model, each MAT program
is a collaboration between the academic departments (for content courses) and the
School of Professional Development (for professional education courses).
MAT in English students take their English Language and Literature content courses
through the University's Department of English, learning from its prestigious faculty
and gaining deep subject-level expertise.
All teacher and leader education program are overseen by Stony Brook's Distributed Teacher and Leader Education.
