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.
