New Mexico Tech Teacher Education Programs are a group of teaching programs intended
for different levels of students, from those pursuing a bachelor’s degree, to those
who already have an established teaching career. Each program has different entry
requirements, and all programs are intended to help students gain the knowledge and
experience they need to succeed in the teaching profession.
The Master of Science for Teachers (MST) Program at New Mexico Tech is a unique graduate program in which educators may obtain
an MST degree in a content-oriented environment. Coursework emphasizes laboratory
and field exercises as students review traditional science and math skills, as well
as explore recent advances in these fields. MST students are encouraged to develop
classroom and laboratory activities that will be used with their own students. This
program is offered primarily through distance education, although courses are offered
on-campus during the summer session.Check out our Summer Course & Workshop OfferingsThe Alternative Licensure Program is a certification program intended for individuals who already possess a bachelor’s
