For students with initial certification who are seeking their Master’s degree, Binghamton offers degrees for the following subjects:
• Earth Science
• Social Studies
We combine advanced study and practice in both an academic area and in professional education, enhancing the teaching and leadership abilities of secondary-school educators. Completion of this degree and other requirements leads to professional certification in New York State as a teacher in grades 7-12 in one of the subjects above. See NYSED.gov - Office of Teaching Initiatives for more information about teacher certification regulations.
