1 Between the Cornell University Department of Education and the State University of New York at Cobleskill School of Agricultural and Natural Resources For the Professional Preparation of Teachers of Agricultural Science Education The purpose of this Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) is to formalize a structured partnership for the professional preparation and certification of teachers of agricultural science for public secondary schools. between the Department of Education at Cornell University and the State University of New York at Cobleskill, Division of Agriculture and Natural Resources. This MOA establishes procedures to coordinate the curricula for agricultural teacher education between the two programs and to expedite the admissions process for Cobleskill students into the Cornell Teacher Education (CTE) program and into the CTE Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) program. Teacher Certification in Agricultural Education Regulation of the profession of teaching is a state function. Every state has its own teacher certification or licensure policies and procedures. Teachers certified to teach in the public schools of New York State are eligible for certification in most other states through a set of reciprocal certification agreements. For those few states without reciprocal certification agreements with New York State, graduates of the Cornell MAT program generally meet or exceed most state certification requirements. In New York State, beginning teachers are required to hold initial teaching certificates. In addition to completing an approved teacher education program, such as the CTE program, candidates for initial certification must also meet several other requirements, including earning passing scores on the relevant portions of the New York State Teacher Certification Exam (NYSTCE). The Initial Certificate is valid for five (5) years at which time it must be converted to a Professional Certificate that is periodically renewable for life. Before the end of that initial five year period, the graduate must have completed a relevant master s degree. Graduation from Cornell s MAT meets the professional certification requirement for a master s degree. Detailed descriptions of teacher certification requirements are available on the New York State Education Department web site. The Program at Cornell Two separate admissions processes are involved. Students must first be admitted to the Cornell Teacher Education (CTE) program to pursue teacher certification at Cornell. In addition, they must be admitted to the Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) program to pursue that degree. Cornell Teacher Education Under this MOA, Cobleskill Bachelor of Science (BS) students may apply for admission to the CTE program as early as the final semester of their sophomore year at Cobleskill. CTE admission criteria will include: A solid undergraduate background with a minimum 3.0 grade point average (GPA) overall and a 3.0 GPA for courses taken in agriculture.

2 Evidence of some teaching experience and a desire to become a teacher. Many kinds of extended interaction with others in an educational setting may qualify: e.g., working as a camp counselor; tutoring students in high school or college; or working with 4-H, FFA, or other youth organizations. Completion of the CTE undergraduate admission application package, available online at the Education Department web site. Upon admission to the CTE program a Cornell advisor will be assigned to Cobleskill students. The Cornell advisors will work with the Cobleskill advisors to facilitate the students eventual application for admission to the MAT program and to be sure that coursework completed at Cobleskill fulfills the requirements for initial certification. Master of Arts in Teaching In general, Cobleskill students with the appropriate credentials may apply for admission to the Cornell MAT program during the second semester of their senior year. Cobleskill students who have been previously admitted to the CTE program may apply for admission to the MAT program during the first semester of their senior year. The admission decision is normally made well before the end of the semester during which the application is made so Cobleskill CTE students should have that decision before beginning their final semester of undergraduate work. Admission to the MAT program at Cornell University is a decision of the Graduate School. Admission is not automatic and is not based on a specific college GPA or Graduate Record Examination (GRE) test score. Each applicant is judged individually. The complete application package is considered, including undergraduate GPA, GRE scores, reference letters, student background and experiences, and the personal goals statement. In general, with acceptable reference letters, suitable student background, related experiences, and an appropriate personal statement, a GPA over 3.0 from an institution such as SUNY Cobleskill and a composite GRE score over 1,000 are adequate for admission to the MAT. Lower GPA and GRE scores are often acceptable if the other considerations reflect exceptional performance and potential. A student who has a proven track record in the agriculture sector or agricultural education, who is a contributing member of the student or local community, and who exhibits a sincere desire to become a teacher of agricultural science is typically given additional consideration in the admissions process. The Process There are three broad sets of requirements for initial teacher certification in New York State: general studies, discipline-specific studies, and professional studies. Teacher candidates may complete those three sets of requirements at any time before applying for initial certification. In general, three options are available through the CTE program for students completing bachelor s degrees at Cobleskill to fulfill those teacher certification requirements: Cobleskill students whose degree programs did not allow them to meet all of the general studies requirements and the discipline-specific requirements during their undergraduate studies may apply for admission to the CTE and MAT programs and then complete those preliminary courses at Cornell as graduate students. In general the courses will count toward meeting certification requirements but not MAT requirements. Typically, such students will require four or more semesters of study, depending on the general studies and discipline-specific courses that they completed as undergraduates. Page 2 of 6

3 Cobleskill students admitted to the CTE program during their junior year can complete all of the general studies requirements and the discipline-specific requirements at Cobleskill and receive their BS degrees before beginning the MAT program at Cornell. For those students, the professional studies requirements and MAT can typically be completed in three semesters, one of which will be set aside for the student teaching internship. Although students may begin the MAT in either the fall or spring semester, the preferred time to begin is fall semester. Cobleskill students who have been admitted to the CTE program at Cornell and who have maintained a 3.0 or higher GPA may elect to attend their final undergraduate semester in a visiting student status at Cornell. By starting the process early enough and by advance arrangement with their academic advisors, visiting students may transfer those credits from Cornell to Cobleskill to be used to complete the final requirements for their BS at Cobleskill. Students who exercise this option should be able to complete the MAT program in two semesters, including student teaching. Although a student may spend the visiting student semester at Cornell either fall or spring, the preferred time is spring semester to allow the student to enter the MAT the following fall semester. Students exercising this option pay Cornell tuition at the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences rate and are expected to enroll for a minimum of 12 semester hours of credit. Cobleskill Coursework Acceptable in the MAT Agricultural Science Education Program Some or all of the courses listed below may be taken during the MAT, although doing so will normally result in one or more additional semesters being required in graduate school. The courses listed below are not the only courses that will meet the requirements; these courses have simply been pre-approved. Other courses may be substituted by agreement with both the Cornell University and Cobleskill advisors. Students should request substitution approval in writing from both advisors. Upon completion of all of these courses prior to beginning the MAT, the student can expect to complete the MAT and certification in three full-time semesters. Students who spend a semester in visiting status at Cornell, and who complete a significant number of professional education courses during that semester, should be able to complete the MAT and qualify for teacher certification in Agricultural Science Education in two semesters. The pre-approved SUNY Cobleskill courses listed below are organized in three sections. General Studies are background courses in science, mathematics, and language arts designed to provide basic knowledge and skills for the future agricultural science teacher. Discipline Studies for Breadth includes courses intended to provide the future teacher with a basic working knowledge in a wide range of agricultural disciplines. Discipline Studies for Depth includes courses designed to provide a greater level of expertise in a single discipline relevant to teaching agriculture. I. General Studies A. Biology 1.
