Question and Answer Session on NYU's New Dual Certification MA Program in Social Studies and Special Education

The social studies/special education master's with dual certification is an excellent opportunity to put your enthusiasm for history to work. The program is designed to be completed in one calendar year with embedded student teaching experiences during the day and course work in the evenings. Following successful completion of the program and requisite teacher exams, you will be prepared to teach in NYC and New York State middle and high schools. You will also be prepared and certified to teach in special or general education settings, both of which are in great need of effective teachers who have content area expertise and the strategies and passion for reaching students who struggle to be successful in school.

Please come to our event to learn more about this great opportunity!

Thursday, February 18th at 5:30-7:00pm
