Day Master of Arts in Teaching (DMAT)
DMAT, a Professional Year program, integrates the theoretical aspects of education with intensive first-hand experience. Your cohort of graduate students will be together for a full year, and you will be taught by a faculty team that both provides classroom instruction and works with you in the schools as you student teach. Along with the cooperating teachers in the schools, we become a learning community looking closely at the many facets of teaching and learning.
The program provides a full year of student teaching. During this time you will have the opportunity to teach both younger and older elementary school-age children, and youngsters of diverse ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds. The program works with specific schools in the metropolitan area, and there is a strong likelihood that one of your placements will be in a school in Manhattan or the Bronx.
The Day Master of Arts in Teaching program (DMAT) is designed so that in one year students can obtain their Master’s Degree and be eligible for New York State Certification. This full-time program is set up as follows:
