American Museum of Natural History First to Offer Master of Arts in Teaching Program


The American Museum of Natural History is now accepting applications for its pioneering Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) program, authorized by the New York State Department of Education as part of a pilot initiative to help address a critical shortage of qualified teachers in New York State, particularly in high-needs schools. The program will model and test new approaches that can be replicated across New York State and nationally.
