A program for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) and Liberal Studies Majors interested in K-12 education.
The CSU East Bay Math and Science Teacher (MAST) Program is designed to provide scholars opportunities to explore science and mathematics education at the middle school and high school levels. This program is open to current STEM and Liberal Studies majors. Liberal studies majors with an interest in teaching elementary school need to be interested in math or science. Scholars will join a community of students interested in STEM education. The scholars will engage in teacher education coursework, field experience directly in the 6-12 grade classrooms, and science and math education workshops at CSUEB and in the greater Bay Area. This program will enable students to obtain 45 hours of classroom experience which is required for entrance into the teaching credential program. Students who successfully complete the MAST Program with at least a 2.67 overall GPA, and successfully meet all Credential Admissions requirements (including testing, documents and interview) for the Multiple and/or Single Subject will have priority in the admissions process.
