Math and Science Teacher (MAST) Program
A program for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) and Liberal Studies Majors interested in K-12 education.

The CSU East Bay Math And Science Teacher (MAST) Program is designed to provide scholars opportunities to explore science and mathematics education at the K-12 levels. This program is open to current STEM and Liberal Studies majors. Scholars will join a community of students interested in STEM education. The scholars will engage in teacher education coursework, field experience directly in the K-12 classrooms, and science and math education workshops at CSUEB and in the greater Bay Area. This program will enable students to obtain 45 hours of classroom experience which is required for entrance into the teaching credential program. Students who successfully complete the MAST Program with at least a 2.67 overall GPA, and successfully meet all Credential Admissions requirements (including testing, documents and interview) will have a space reserved for them in the CSUEB credential program.
