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 am beginning to think that one way in which I can be more helpful in creating a classroom environment where no one is excluded is simply by getting to know the strengths, passions, and unique backgrounds of each of the students. (As I write that I realize it sounds like a very tall order.) I decided to use fifteen minutes that the students are allotted for snacktime as an opportunity to discover things about my students."
