How Can an Undergraduate Student Plan for Certification in Technology Education K-12?

Undergraduate students who wish to prepare for admission to our graduate program in Applied Technology Education (ATE) that prepares teachers for New York certification technology education in middle and secondary schools have a recommended pathway at Saint Rose. Students with expertise in mathematics, science, computer technology, electronics, engineering design, manufacturing processes, and telecommunications can bring that knowledge and skills into the graduate ATE program.

Undergraduate students interested in the graduate ATE program should consider Saint Rose undergraduate majors in Communications, Computer Science, Childhood Education with a concentration in Computing and Logic. Because a Master’s degree is required for all teacher certification areas, these academic options are viable alternatives for pursuing a vision of becoming a NY certified technology education teacher through the undergraduate level, then graduate study.
