MASTER OF ARTS IN TEACHING PROGRAM AT BARD COLLEGE OFFERS INFORMATION SESSIONS FOR PROSPECTIVE STUDENTS IN ANNANDALE AND NEW YORK CITY

 

ANNANDALE-ON-HUDSON, N.Y.—The Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) Program at Bard College—offering an integrated program of advanced study in biology, history, literature, or mathematics and graduate study in education in one- or two-year cycles—presents information sessions for prospective students in December.

 

The sessions will be held on Saturday, December 8, at 11:30 a.m. in the Bard College’s Bertelsmann Campus Center in Annandale-on-Hudson, and in New York City on Wednesday, December 12, at 5:30 p.m. at Bard Hall, located at 410 West 58th Street. Faculty, program administrators, and alumni/ae of the MAT Program will be available for discussion and to answer questions about admission.

 

“The MAT Program was designed to respond to an urgent need for change in public education, a change that state mandates in the form of high-stake standardized tests will never be able to accomplish,” says Ric Campbell, director of the program. “We seek a transformation of classroom learning by helping our MAT students become teachers who can help high school and middle school students develop the thoughtful self-determination that results from a genuine enthusiasm for learning.”

 

The program—which leads to a MAT degree and NYS certification to teach in grades 7–12—offers courses and field experience on two campuses, either at Bard’s Annandale-on-Hudson campus or on site at one of the MAT partner schools in New York City. Scholarships and fellowships are available for study in the MAT Program.
