About this Program

New accelerated 12-Month Initial Teacher Certification Master of Science in Education: Dual Childhood 1-6/Special Education (Teaching Students with Disabilities) Program.

This 1-year, 3-semester, 46-credit program is designed for the person who is committed to the educability of all children and who wants the flexibility of possessing the certifications to teach in a general, inclusive or special education setting on the elementary level (grades 1-6). The program leads to initial teacher certification in both Childhood Education (grades 1-6) and Teaching Students with Disabilities (Special Education), upon graduation and successfully completing NYSED requirements, including passing grades on CST Multi-Subject (002) and the CST Students with Disabilities (060) certification exams.

A Purpose-Centered System of Education uniquely links theory to practice at each stage of the learning process. Through a cohort model, students are organized into peer learning communities to develop knowledge, skills and understanding aligned to the New York State Teaching Standards. Because the program is committed to preparing teachers who are able to use educational technology, students will be given their own laptop computer to help them explore, evaluate and effectively integrate instructional technologies throughout the curriculum.

The MS in Education program is designed for recent college graduates, career changers and uncertified teachers. This 12-month program is for full-time students only. Students can begin in the fall, spring or summer semester. Students are expected to complete the entire program in 12 consecutive months with their entering cohort class. In compliance with NYSED regulations, the program consists of 120 hours of field experiences during the first semester. During the second and third semesters, students will participate in two student teaching experiences each lasting 32 school days.
