The City College offers several programs that prepare graduates to teach science in New York State’s middle and secondary schools. Students majoring in science at the undergraduate level may complete the coursework required to teach science in grades 7-12.  Master's degree programs are offered for middle (grades 5-9) and adolescent (grades 7-12) level New York State certification.  For those who hold a master's degree in science or a closely related field, an advanced certificate program is offered for secondary level candidates.

Science teacher candidates complete both science and science pedagogy linked courses.  They learn to apply a variety of research-based teaching strategies preparing them to meet the diverse learning needs of students in the New York City schools and to help their students meet current New York State learning standards for science.
