American Museum of Natural History: Master of Arts in Teaching Program
Change lives. Teach science.
MAT students in the classroomDear Professor Principato,

The Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) program at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City offers Earth and space science graduates a chance to make a difference. This teaching fellowship combines coursework, mentoring, and real-world experience to prepare graduates for rewarding careers as middle and high school teachers. We hope that you will share this information widely with your students and colleagues.

With a sole focus on preparing new Earth science teachers, the MAT program is a full-time, 15-month Master’s program that takes place at the museum and in urban partner schools. We seek a student body with diverse life and career experience, and the application is open to all candidates meeting the eligibility requirements. All degree candidates will receive free tuition and books and a $30,000 living stipend. In return, candidates commit to teaching in a high-needs school in New York State for four years.

We are currently accepting applicants for the class that will matriculate in June 2017. Prospective students looking for more information should explore our website, view our Informational Videos, and feel free to reach out to us for more information. Contact the program office directly at mat@amnh.org or (212) 313-7464.
