The Education Department at Marist is registered with the New York State Education Department (NYSED) and is a member of the Association for Advancing Quality Educator Preparation (AAQEP). This registration covers initial teacher preparation programs and advanced educator preparation programs at Marist. The MAT program leads to New York State initial certification in Adolescence Education (grades 7-12) and Special Education Generalist for the following areas: History, Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics, French, Spanish, or English.
The 36-credit-hour Teaching program from Marist College includes one full semester teaching practicum and focuses on developing the professional knowledge, skills, and dispositions needed by a new teacher. Our goal is to prepare reflective professionals who think critically and work collaboratively to help all students learn. To qualify for New York State certification, students must also pass a series of state-required exams, including the Educating All Students Test (EAST), Content Specialty Tests (CST) in both the content area and Special Education, and edTPA. The edTPA examination is completed in the last semester in the program while candidates are in their student teaching practicum.
- Advisement: Each student entering the program will follow a cohort study plan that considers the student's schedule and other responsibilities, as well as what she or he needs to prepare for a successful teaching career. Students will have regular meetings with the Director of Graduate Education Programs to discuss academic progress and ways to enhance their Marist graduate experience.
- Electronic Portfolio: Across the program, students create an electronic portfolio that demonstrates the professional knowledge and skills they have developed. This is a multimedia, standards-based document that is stored online. An early course prepares students to use the online Marist system for portfolio development and students present and defend their completed portfolio in the final semester of the program.
