New this fall is an MAT and Advanced Certificate in Critical Languages Education for Grades 7-12. The program is designed for individuals with a bachelor’s degree in a critical language – identified by the federal government as Arabic, Chinese, Hindi, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, and Urdu – who wish to become certified teachers of that language and gain their master’s degree in teaching and developing new programs for secondary critical language programs.
Queens College has graduated more New York City school principals, superintendents, teachers, and counselors than any other metropolitan area college, cementing our major role in “educating the educators.” Queens College is also the only college in New York State to offer a Master of Science in Education degree to teach both math and computer science. Students will graduate with the specialized knowledge and skills in computer science that are needed to teach the subject in secondary schools.
The Queens College faculty of dedicated teachers and scholars includes among its members scientist Dr. Stephen Pekar, whose research involves the “Lost Continent” of Zealandia, and Dr. Kimiko Hahn, an award-winning poet in the college's MFA in Creative Writing program and president of the Poetry Society of America, as well as numerous recipients of prestigious national and international fellowships, awards, and research grants. The college has almost 600 full-time faculty and lecturers and 8 out of 10 full-time faculty are recipients of doctorates.
The Queens College experience is enhanced by the availability of scholarly resources and state-of-the-art facilities. These include extensive scientific, computer, music, and art resources, as well as the Louis Armstrong Archives, the Benjamin Rosenthal Library, and the many venues of the Kupferberg Center for the Visual and Performing Arts.
