The Department of Education offers programs leading to the Master of Science in Education (MSEd) in Childhood Education, Adolescence Education, Special Education Childhood (1-6), Special Education Adolescence Generalist (7-12), and the Post-Master’s Advanced Certificate for Leadership in Education.

Education courses are identified according to the following ALPHA designations:

EDA - Supervision and Administration

EDC - Early Childhood

EDD - General Education

EDE - Childhood Education (Elementary Education)

EDM - Middle School Education

EDP - Special Education

EDS - Adolescence Education (Secondary Education).

Students are also referred to the section on Graduate Courses in Selected Disciplines for courses of interest to teachers and courses designed especially for professionals in education. Graduate courses are available in American studies, biology, dramatic arts, environmental science, geography, history, mathematics, political science, and philosophy of science.

Policies

The following policies apply to students in the master’s degree programs:

Admission

Admission and degree requirements are shown under the program descriptions that follow.

Admission with Advanced Standing

  1. Graduate courses taken within the last five years at an accredited college or university may be accepted at the discretion of the coordinator of the graduate program. A maximum of 12 graduate credits in graduate courses, with a minimum grade of 3.0 (B) in each course, may be applied toward a graduate degree from the College of Staten Island.
  2. Acceptance of courses meeting the above requirements is not automatic. Acceptance of any course taken elsewhere toward the requirements for the CSI degree is at the discretion of the coordinator of the graduate program. Courses submitted must be equivalent to courses offered at CSI that meet the student’s programmatic needs. Therefore, students are urged to submit advanced standing requests prior to, or as soon as possible after, matriculation into the program. Forms are available at the Registrar’s Office.

Grade Point Average

Students must maintain a 3.0 (B) grade point average to receive a graduate degree in Education.

Advanced students may be allowed to take one or two specific graduate courses at other institutions with prior approval of the graduate program coordinator and department chairperson.

The program will foster and enhance students' competence in teaching, understanding of current educational research and theory, and knowledge in selected areas of the liberal arts and sciences. It appreciates and recognizes that education occurs across the lifespan in a variety of settings, and its courses reflect these understandings, work to foster these dispositions in students, and actualize these perspectives in practice. It is designed to serve dual functions through two distinct instructional sequences:

Sequence 1: This sequence is designed for those who have completed the course requirements for initial certification in childhood education from the New York State Department of Education. Upon satisfactory completion of the program, students will have met the academic requirements for professional certification in childhood education.

Sequence 2: This sequence is designed for college graduates who have not completed programs leading to initial certification in childhood education and wish to become elementary teachers. Upon satisfactory completion of the program, students will have met the academic requirements for initial certification in childhood education.

Childhood Education Admission Requirements

For Sequence 1, candidates must have completed the coursework leading to a New York State initial certificate in childhood education or early childhood education. A copy of the certificate must be submitted to the program when it is granted by the New York State Education Department. Candidates must also possess a baccalaureate degree in a liberal arts and sciences major, or 36 credits in a liberal arts and sciences concentration, at least six credits each in English, history, mathematics, and science, and an overall grade point average (GPA) at or above 3.0.

For Sequence 2, candidates must possess a baccalaureate degree in a liberal arts and sciences major, or 36 approved credits in a liberal arts and sciences concentration, at least six approved credits each in English, history, mathematics, and science, and an overall grade point average (GPA) at or above 3.0.

For both sequences, applicants whose GPAs fall below the respective minimums may submit a letter of appeal to the appropriate program coordinator; however, such appeals will be granted only under extraordinary circumstances. Applicants appealing for admission must present documentation demonstrating their ability to succeed in the program and may be required to take up to 24 credits in undergraduate liberal arts and science courses, as prescribed by the program coordinator, in which they must earn grades no lower than 3.0(B).

Applications for Sequences 1 and 2 are accepted for fall and spring semesters. All applications must include two academic or professional letters of recommendation and a one- or two-page personal statement that discusses the academic, teaching, and/or work experiences that have led and prepared the applicant to pursue graduate study in education.

Childhood Education Degree Requirements

Sequence 1 consists of ten courses and a minimum of 32-38 graduate credits in five required areas of study. Students may select a concentration from the following areas: learning and development, literacy education, mathematics education, music education, science education, social foundations of education, and social studies education or pursue a multidisciplinary program. Students interested in a concentration should contact the program coordinator.

Sequence 2 consists of a minimum of 45-49 graduate credits. Students complete six required core courses before selecting form an array of advanced graduate courses.

In both sequences, students are required to complete an acceptable educational research project, which is carried out under faculty supervision in EDD 630 and EDD 631.
