The unique Master of Science in Education: Dual Childhood1-6/Special Education degree at Metropolitan College of New York is registered by the New York State Education Department. This program is for people who want the flexibility of holding two certifications to teach in general, inclusive, or special education classroom settings, on the elementary level.
Following our experientially-based Purpose-Centered Education model, students learn to become effective teachers by applying the coursework while completing a 10-month residency in urban public schools. After completing all of the program degree requirements, graduates are institutionally recommended to the New York State Education Department for both Initial and Professional certifications in Childhood Education Grades 1-6 (Program Code: 34552), and Students with Disabilities Grades 1-6 (Program Code: 34552).
