NYU and Yeshiva University Create Partnership to Encourage Math and Science Teachers

January 29, 2009
N-263, 2008-09

In an effort to increase the number of highly qualified teachers of math and science in middle and high schools, New York University’s Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development and Yeshiva University have created a partnership allowing eligible men and women from its Yeshiva College and Stern College of Women to take undergraduate education courses at NYU Steinhardt during their junior and senior years. Students who complete credits in the program will then be eligible to apply for admission to Steinhardt’s Master of Arts program in math or science education with reduced credit requirements.

“I’m delighted that NYU Steinhardt’s partnership with Yeshiva University will widen the pool of highly qualified students interested in becoming teachers of math and science, of which there is a critical shortage in New York City and around the nation,” said Mary Brabeck, dean of NYU Steinhardt.

“This is a win-win for all parties,” remarked Edward Berliner, executive director of science management at Yeshiva University. “Our students will receive an opportunity to explore and gain expedited access to a wonderful and rewarding career. Yeshiva University will be able to further leverage the first-rate science and math educations it provides toward making a palpable improvement in the training and nurturing of our nation’s next generation of leaders.”

In order to apply to the Program, YU students must complete an NYU Special Student Application Form for Undergraduate Admission and submit it to the NYU Office of Undergraduate Admissions by August 1 for fall courses, December 1 for spring courses, and April 1 for summer courses. YU students who are accepted to the program will be permitted to take six to eight undergraduate credits in the fall term and six to eight credits in the spring term.

More information, including instructions for submitting a Special Student Application, can be found on the Steinhardt website, http://steinhardt.nyu.edu/teachlearn/yeshiva or www.yu.edu.
