Childhood Special Education (M.S.E.)
The master’s degree program in Childhood Special Education prepares teachers who already have childhood (grades 1–6) or elementary certification (pre-k–6), offering the knowledge and skills needed for teaching special education in grades 1 through 6. The coursework and field experiences develop competencies in understanding, assessing, and instructing children with mild disabilities and lead to New York state certification as a teacher of Children with Disabilities in Childhood Education.
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 a childhood or elementary teacher.
