Iona College has revamped its Master of Science in Teaching (MST) program so that students and working professionals can save valuable time and money.
Students now can complete a degree with 33 to 36 credits, down from 45, and save anywhere from $9,000 to $12,000 over the life of the program.
“The demand for teachers in grades 7 through 12 is great and will only grow in the coming years,” said Professor Richard McMahon, clinical senior lecturer and coordinator of Graduate Education Programs at Iona College. “Our MST in Adolescent Education provides people with the necessary skills and formal training to not only become gainfully employed, but to be leaders in their field. Once their degree requirements and related student teaching are completed, graduates will find a relatively smooth path to the classroom,” said McMahon.
