Graduate Programs

The Department of Elementary & Early Childhood Education (EECE) offers graduate programs leading to New York State certification in Childhood Education, Grades 1–6 and Early Childhood Education, B–2. The programs prepare teachers to support learning and development within the family, culture, and community contexts of students and schools. EECE programs share a commitment to educational practices that honor linguistic and cultural diversity, and integrate technology and instruction to enhance learning.
The Department offers a 39-credit program leading to the Master of Science in Education degree (MSED) for students who have completed a teacher certification program in elementary/early childhood and currently hold a provisional or initial teaching certificate.
For students who have completed their master's degree, the department offers a 15-credit Post-Master’s Certificate Program resulting in a Certificate of Advanced Study in a specific field.
For students who did not complete an elementary education certification program as undergraduates, EECE offers a 36-credit program leading to the Master of Arts in Teaching degree (MAT). 

Courses are generally offered in the late afternoon and evening. Part-time students normally register for 6 credits each semester. A typical full-time program would be 12 credits each semester and 3 credits in the summer.
