Welcome to Elementary Inclusive Education

  • Welcome Message

    The Preservice Program in Elementary Inclusive Education is both a graduate program and a professional course of study. This rigorous academic program is designed primarily for those who have no (or minimal) formal preparation or coursework in education and are beginning their study of teaching. The program leads to an M.A. degree and New York State teacher certification. Upon completion of the program, graduates can also apply for teacher certification in states other than New York, and many secure teaching positions elsewhere in the U.S. as well as internationally.

    There are two main components to the program: course work and student teaching. All M.A. students have a five-year candidacy period in which to complete their degree program.

What Our Students Say

    "I think the hardest aspect of teaching is making certain to meet the needs of every student. As a teacher, you are responsible for the education of the students. Parents have placed their trust into your hands. How does a teacher give a lesson to twenty-one different students sitting in one classroom? How does a teacher make certain that each student is learning?"
