The Mount's Master of Science in Education (MS in Ed) program
enjoys an outstanding reputation throughout the Hudson Valley
region and beyond.
Our students work in schools in our community as part of the
education process. Many of our education courses are taught at
local schools, a practice that provides “hands-on” experience for
students to apply teaching techniques and to hone tutoring skills
for local students.
The Division of Education at Mount Saint Mary College is
accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher
Education (NCATE), www.ncate.org. This accreditation
covers initial teacher preparation programs and/or advanced
educator preparation programs at the College in Newburgh, New York.
However, the accreditation does not include individual education
courses that the institution offers to P-12 educators for
professional development, relicensure, or other purposes.
As part of the maintenance of NCATE accreditation, the college
is required to display data revealing the success of our programs.
The following link displays a connection to the most recent results
of Mount Saint Mary College teacher candidate “completers”
(graduates of our programs recommended for certification) on New York State Teacher
NCATE accreditation is a mark of distinction, and provides
recognition that the college has met national professional
standards for the preparation of teachers.
