What is the Science, Technology and Mathematics BS/MAT program all about?

The Science, Technology and Math BS/MAT program allows you to focus on developing a deeper understanding of your science, technology or math discipline while learning from some of the best instructors in their fields. At FSU, you can be involved in real-world, hands-on research, study the latest trends in computer science and technology and master advanced mathematical skills.

Once you earn your Bachelor of Science degree, you will begin work on your Master of Arts in Teaching degree through FSU’s popular MAT program (provided you meet criteria such as a minimum grade point average). The MAT, offered through FSU’s College of Education, will provide you with the specific tools for teaching science, technology or math at the middle school and high school levels. You will learn and practice the latest teaching trends in secondary education and be ready to pass on your knowledge to a new generation of students.

 


Get your bachelor's and master's degrees in only five years!

When you sign up for the Science, Technology and Math
BS/MAT program, you will receive your Bachelor of Science degree in one of the following science, technology or math disciplines offered at FSU:

     � Biology
     � Chemistry
     � Computer Science
     � Earth Science
     � Engineering
     � Mathematics

You can also participate in special hall programs and activities with science, technology and math faculty.

 


Scholarship Opportunities

Frostburg State University offers several significant scholarships exclusively for students who want to teach science, technology and math. Scholarships are both need- and merit-based.

For more information and a listing of these scholarships as well as state and federally sponsored aid, visit the FSU Office of Financial Aid online at http://www.frostburg.edu/ungrad/faid/ or contact the office at 301.687.4301

 


Renowned faculty, facilities and features

At FSU, you will learn from and work with science, technology and math professors who are experts and leaders in their fields. Class sizes are traditionally small (average of 17:1), so you will get hands-on experiences in your courses, as well as one-on-one contact with faculty members. You won’t be just “another number” in a big lecture hall.

FSU’s Compton Science Center is a new facility that houses state-of-the-art labs and equipment, so you can be involved in industry-changing research and work on the same advanced equipment used in professional lab settings.

At the end of your undergraduate studies when you transfer to the educational side of your training, you will be instructed by some of the top education professors in the state of Maryland. Frostburg State University was founded as a teacher’s college over 100 years ago and continues to have the reputation of producing first-rate and sought-after educators.

In addition, FSU is located in the beautiful mountains of Western Maryland and offers some of the most beautiful scenery on the East Coast – while still being within driving distance of Baltimore, Pittsburgh and Washington, D.C., metro areas.

 


Get on the fast track to teaching success

When you graduate from the Science, Technology and Math
BS/MAT program at FSU, you will have the advantage of starting your career as a highly qualified teacher with a Master of Arts in Teaching and will immediately be eligible to be hired at a higher rate of pay.

You will have already met the Maryland state requirement that teachers complete a master’s degree within 10 years of receiving their bachelor’s degree. This means that you can focus on your teaching without the distraction of going to night classes.

Best of all, science, technology and math middle school and high school teachers are in demand in the state of Maryland and nationwide! The need for strong, inspiring and qualified teachers is great. Why not do what you love, share it with others and love what you do?
