Testimonials

“I chose to enroll in SUNY Potsdam in 2007 because I wanted to become a high school Physics teacher. Potsdam’s MST program meant that I could get my Master’s degree in record time, while I was still in school and not working full-time. To top it off, the teaching principles I learned in the program have shaped me into the educator I am today.” —Brendan Burkhart

“The MST program allowed me to achieve my Bachelor’s degree in Biology, as well as my Master’s in Secondary Science Education, in 5 years. The program not only saved time, but money as well! The classes gave me practical knowledge that allowed me to be more successful in the classroom after graduation in 2012. I am now in my third year of teaching biology full-time!” —Jennifer Shimaitis
