In-Service, Certification track
Recent New York State regulations require that candidates wishing to become special educators must also be certified in a particular grade range. The M.S. in Childhood Special Education is an in-service program for candidates who already hold initial (provisional) certification in childhood (elementary) education. For candidates who hold no certification or hold certification in an area other than elementary and/or special education, the department offers the dual major in Special Education in Inclusive Settings. This program awards initial NYS teacher certification in both Childhood Education, grades 1–6 and Students with Disabilities, grades 1–6.
Courses are three credits unless noted otherwise. All courses with an * require field work hours.
