The Childhood Education program is distinguished by exceptionally strong field experiences and a carefully coordinated sequence of courses progressing from foundations and teaching methods to the development of a professional portfolio. Candidates develop teaching skills and apply knowledge learned in courses during their field experiences. They are supported by expert faculty, master teachers and field advisers/mentors. The 36-credit program leads to a Master of Science in Teaching degree (MST) and NYS Initial Teacher Certification in Childhood Education 1-6.
The program is approved by the Association of Childhood Education International (ACEI). Fordham’s Graduate School of Education is a nationally accredited teacher education institution in New York City.
