State OKs Mount’s 5-year joint pro­gram

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - COMMUNITY -

Mount Saint Mary Col­lege re­cently re­ceived state Ed­u­ca­tion Depart­ment ap­proval of its five-year BA/MSEd de­grees in his­tory and math.

The bach­e­lor’s in math­e­mat­ics/mas­ter’s in ado­les­cence ed­u­ca­tion and bach­e­lor’s in his­tory/mas­ter’s in ado­les­cence ed­u­ca­tion pro­grams are avail­able ei­ther with or with­out dual cer­ti­fi­ca­tion in spe­cial ed­u­ca­tion.

The pro­grams were de­vel­oped by the col­lege’s di­vi­sion of math­e­mat­ics and in­for­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy and the di­vi­sion of ed­u­ca­tion, and the di­vi­sion of so­cial sci­ences and di­vi­sion of ed­u­ca­tion, re­spec­tively.

Teach­ers in New York state are re­quired to earn a mas­ter’s de­gree within five years of their ini­tial cer­ti­fi­ca­tion, so the pro­grams at the Mount will help stu­dents com­plete their train­ing in a shorter pe­riod, ac­cord­ing to a press re­lease.
