M.S.ED IN ADOLESCENT EDUCATION

The MS. Ed. in Adolescent Education includes instruction in NYS P-12 Common Core Learning Standards, Dignity for all Students Act (anti-bullying and cyber bullying legislation), and all current  mandates and standards from New York State related to the NYSTCEs, specifically the edTPA.

The Adolescent Education program provides a 33 credit course of study consisting of methodologies, philosophy, literacy, application, pre-student teaching and student teaching hours. In order to receive initial certification from the State of New York, all students must participate in and successfully complete all academic requirements for certification in Adolescent Education (grades 7-12).

New York State Teaching Certification Examinations (NYSTCE)

Students must take these tests:

1.      ALST (Academic Literacy Skills Test)

2.      CST (Content Specialty Test) for either English, French, Mathematics, Biology, or Chemistry, Social Studies, Literacy, Students with Disabilities

3.      edTPA (Teacher Performance Assessment)

4.      EAS (Educating all Students Exam)

Comprehensive Examination:

All students are required to successfully complete a comprehensive exam upon completion of their coursework and prior to beginning EDU 677 Student Teaching in Adolescent Education (6 credits). Each exam consists of approximately fifty percent pedagogical questions from Medaille course content and fifty percent discipline-specific questions from the student's content area. A minimum score of 75 is required for passing. If a student scores lower than a 75, he or she can schedule one opportunity to re-take the exam.  The examination will be set jointly by all program faculty each academic year and is administered in the final semester of coursework.

Student Teaching: Students will fulfill student teaching requirements in both adolescent settings, grades 7-9 and grades 10-12. It should be noted that students accepted into the program are required to finish the coursework in their area of certification prior to beginning Student Teaching.
