The Day Master of Arts in Teachingn Program (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 DMAT 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 one of your placements might be in a school in Manhattan or the Bronx. 

This full-time program is set up as follows:
