Studies in Teaching/Education:

Cornell offers a minor in education that prepares students for a variety of post-graduate opportunities, including graduate programs in teaching and education policy and entry-level positions in outreach, extension, and education research. Teaching in public schools requires certification, which students can pursue at a variety of graduate and teacher-residency programs around the country. (Cornell faculty listed at education.cals.cornell.edu can advise students on program options.) An especially convenient and strong option is the program at Ithaca College that leads to a Master of Arts in Teaching (M.A.T.) and New York State certification. A special agreement between Cornell and Ithaca College streamlines the application process. For information about Cornell’s education minor, as well as certification areas available under the agreement with Ithaca College, visit education.cals.cornell.edu or ithaca.edu/gradprograms/education.
