NYS Certification
The M.S. in Urban and Multicultural Education fulfills academic requirements for permanent certification in any subject area or professional certification Childhood 1-6. Prior to program completion, an information session on the certification process will be held.

Graduate students who have New York State certification and the pre-requisite undergraduate academic major may choose the Middle Level Education concentration (nine credits) to obtain Grades 5-6 or 7-9 certification extension in this area.

Graduate students who choose the English as a Second Language concentration do not qualify for New York State certification in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL). However, the courses of study do provide teachers with essential skills to meet the needs of multilingual youngsters in their classrooms. Teachers who wish to pursue additional graduate study in this area have a solid foundation of transferable course work in TESOL.
