Adolescent and Adolescent Special Education, MST


With Pace’s Master of Science for Teachers (MST) graduate degree programs, professionals and college graduates who want to become teachers, but do not hold an undergraduate degree in education, can receive the preparation they need to be stellar classroom teachers.

With our new MST program in Inclusive Adolescent Education, you will develop the skills needed to teach teens with and without learning differences and disabilities and the intricacies of a subject area—biology, chemistry, Earth science, English, history/social studies, or mathematics. Graduates from this program will gain a deep understanding and in-depth knowledge of the practices to masterfully engage students of all learning styles and abilities.

Our Inclusive Adolescent Education degree program is accredited and rigorous, and will give you the tools you need to make a real difference and help teens prepare for the next steps in their lives. Special Education is one of the fastest growing segments in the field of education. Together with your courses and fieldwork, dual certification in these critical areas of education will be advantageous as you stand out from peers as a teacher prepared to meet the needs of all adolescent learners during these critical years and help them realize their greatest potential.

The school’s rigorous curriculum prepares students for success. Last year, 98 percent of Pace graduates passed the NY State Certification exams.
