Currently, UGC's School of Education provides a Master of Arts in Physics Teaching degree program to students who have obtained a bachelor's degree in physics.  This 16-credit program is completed in one year and includes a full-year internship in a secondary school.  MAT graduates receive a New York State Initial Certificate in Physics Teaching for grades 7-12.

Currently, we graduate on average 1-2 physics teachers per year.  We would like to double that number and we are working with Union College,  Siena College, and Skidmore College on a Phys-TECH Comprehensive Grant Proposal that would increase the number of applicants to our program.
