Graduate Program in Special Education Childhood

The program prepares students to teach students with disabilities in childhood. 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 special education at the childhood level.

Sequence 2: This sequence is designed for college graduates who have not completed the course requirements for initial certification in childhood education. Upon satisfactory completion of the program, students will have met the academic requirements for initial certification in teaching students with disabilities in childhood.
