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

    "Even though I am learning the difficulties of being a teacher, I am also gaining a deeper appreciation of the joys involved in teaching. There is nobody more courageous than a child that raises his hand to answer a question even though he is not certain if he is correct. When he gives an incorrect answer, he is not discouraged. He does not stop raising his hand because he did not give the right answer. Instead, he is the first student to raise his hand to give the answer for the next question."
