The School of Education offers academic programs leading to bachelor's and master's degrees that meet both initial/professional and professional certification requirements of the State of New York.  Our programs are approved by the New York State Education Department and we are proud members of the American Association of Quality Educator Preparation, accredited through 2028. 

All courses are designed for students to achieve competencies identified by local P-12 school district personnel and prescribed by the New York State Education Department.
