Teaching, with Teacher Certification in Health and Physical Education (Preschool-Grade 12) and Teacher of Students with Disabilities (Combined B.S./M.A.T.)
The Bachelor's/MAT Dual-Certification Inclusive Education Program provides students with the opportunity to receive both a Bachelor's and Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) degree with teacher certification in both general education and special education. The program is designed to help teachers develop competencies needed to teach students who have disabilities along with those who do not.
In this program, students complete general education and major requirements and an initial set of coursework in education as undergraduates. As graduate students, they will complete the coursework in education and conduct their fieldwork and student teaching.
Montclair State University’s Teacher Education Program is one of the most highly-regarded teacher preparation programs in the country. It has been consistently recognized both nationally and regionally for its unique features, including its structure, partnerships, and curricular emphases. The program is considered a model for other colleges and universities and has continuously been accredited by the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) since 1954.
The Teacher Education Program’s professional course sequence and field experiences emphasize teaching for critical thinking and culturally responsive teaching. The professional component for both graduate students addresses four broad areas:
- Student development and learning
- The classroom and the school
- The curriculum
- Effective teaching skills
