The Graduate School of Education offers an innovative pre-service Master of Science in Education (MSEd) program in Childhood and Early Childhood Education. This program leads to multiple New York State teaching certifications, allowing graduates to work with children from birth through grade 6 in a variety of different roles. Two tracks are available:
-Childhood, Early Childhood and Literacy
-Childhood, Early Childhood and Special Education

Under the guidance of distinguished professors and top-tier teachers in partnership schools and early-childhood programs, students will become teachers with clearly defined commitments, as well as the ability to make a real difference in the lives of children and their families.

Professional Development

During this 2-year, full-time program, students will take a range of courses and work with children in several different fieldwork and student-teaching placements. These experiences will offer opportunities to make connections between theory and practice while developing the knowledge, skills and dispositions necessary to help all students be successful in school.

The curriculum includes intensive coursework and field experiences, boasting strong content speciality as well as diverse student and faculty backgrounds. Faculty advisors and office staff are eager to assist students in tailoring their course of study and field placements. Students are encouraged to take advantage of a well-established network of alumni and professional connections that will help with field visits and placement. There are urban, suburban and rural schools in close proximity for student teaching opportunities.

After You Graduate

Alumni of our program teach in schools around the region and around the country. Other graduates have found roles working with children in other capacities, such as in literacy programs or as speech therapists. Employment opportunities for teachers have improved significantly over the last few years, particularly for teachers who are willing to relocate. Due to strict licensure rules, a New York State teaching license is well respected across the nation, and it is easy for graduates of the program to find employment as teachers in other states.

All applicants must submit the following:

- Online graduate degree application and application fee
- Transcripts from each college/university which you have attended
