Welcome to the Graduate Programs in Special Education  facebook_1
The City College of New York!

The School of Education at the City College of New York offers two graduate programs in Special Education:

Teacher of Students with Disabilities in Childhood Education (Grades 1-6),


Teacher of Students with Disabilities in Adolescent Education (Grades 7-12).

1-Heidi_1 The two programs in special education require 31-43 credit hours (depending on your previous coursework) and lead to a Master of Science in Education degree. The inclusion model of delivering special education services in an urban environment is emphasized, but candidates will be prepared to work in self-contained environments as well.
Our candidates develop a knowledge base and set of skills that prepare them to incorporate research-based instructional strategies focused on addressing the diverse learning needs of the students they teach/will teach. Candidates leave prepared to work in New York City schools and help their students meet current New York State learning standards. 1-Chris
