You love math. Or reading Chinese. Or understanding how societies work–and how to improve them. Adolescent Education at Hunter College provides the training and certification you need to make a career out of expanding and sharing your knowledge, whatever your field of expertise. Because each program is partnered with the School of Arts & Sciences, you will be able to study their chosen subject at the Master’s level while developing teaching skills through rich clinical experiences and coursework. Applicants who majored or completed significant coursework in subjects ranging from English to Latin, Physics to Social Studies, will find their path to professional success through Hunter’s wide range of Adolescent Education programs.
If you already hold a Master’s in a specific content area, you may be eligible for a Post Master’s Advanced Certificate, a shorter course sequence that leads to teacher certification.
While learning about teaching in a variety of New York City school settings, you will be mentored by supportive, expert faculty. You will learn how to make your subject compelling to diverse populations, and you’ll practice designing effective curricula and implementing multiple learning modalities for adolescent learners. You will integrate technology into the classroom and develop experiential learning projects to engage your students. And, because of their immersion in New York City schools and close collaboration with faculty and classmates, graduates leave Hunter having developed expansive professional networks, ensuring job placement and continued opportunities throughout their careers.
