The Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) program at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City is looking for graduates with Earth and space science backgrounds (geology, mineralogy, paleontology, oceanography, astronomy, and more) who want to make a difference in the world of STEM education. This teaching fellowship combines coursework, mentoring, and real-world experience to prepare Earth and space science graduates for rewarding careers as middle and high school teachers.
All degree candidates will receive free tuition and books and a $30,000 living stipend. In return, candidates commit to teaching in a high-need school in New York State for four years. With a sole focus on preparing new Earth science teachers, the MAT program is a full-time, 15-month Master's degree program that takes place at the museum and in urban partner schools. We seek a student body with diverse life and career experiences, and the application is open to all candidates meeting the eligibility requirements.
We are currently accepting applicants for the class that will matriculate in June 2019. Prospective students are encouraged to attend an on-site Information Session or to contact us for more information.
