Preparing future generations
Gain the skills, knowledge and experience necessary to teach in a world not yet known. With a major or minor in Educational Studies, you’ll gain critical skills in promoting tolerance and respect for differences, train in different means of resolving conflicts through in-class lectures and most importantly, you’ll learn to be an educator by spending significant time in local classrooms. You'll become a researcher and practitioner of education across a variety of settings.
In addition to the major and minor, many students choose to pursue teacher certification while at the Colleges. Offerings include 15 NYS-registered teacher certification programs in elementary education and teaching students with disabilities (grades 1-6), in most secondary school subjects (grades 7-12), and in music, art, and TESOL (grades preK-12).
