Early Childhood Special Education (Adv Cert)
The Early Childhood Special Education Advanced Certificate program is for teachers who already possess initial, provisional, permanent, or professional certification in early childhood (birth-grade 2), childhood (grades 1-6), or elementary (pre-k-6) education. The program leads to New York state certification for teaching students with disabilities (birth-grade 2).
In addition to the general admission and completion requirements for master’s-level graduate study, candidates must provide evidence of their initial/provisional or permanent/professional certification as an early childhood or elementary teacher.
