Early Childhood Special Education (M.S.E.)
The 30-credit master's degree program in early childhood special education prepares teachers who already have early childhood (birth–grade 2) or elementary (pre-K–6) certification, offering the knowledge and skills needed for teaching special education in programs for children from birth through grade 2.
This program places special emphasis on children with disabilities in preschool and the primary grades. The coursework and field experiences develop competencies in understanding, assessing, and instructing children with disabilities and lead to New York state certification as a teacher of Children with Disabilities in Early 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 an early childhood or elementary teacher.
