What You’ll Learn
Every day, teachers make a difference in the lives of young people. Learn how to design lessons across multiple content areas to inspire creativity for all learners.
Our Childhood Inclusive Education (MSEd) program will provide you with the content and skills necessary to become an outstanding New York State teacher. You can also take your studies abroad with our unique field experience placements in Alaska, Australia, New York City, and Ghana.
We prepare teachers to help every student learn, grow, and thrive. In today’s classroom teachers engage with students with a range of abilities, languages, and cultural backgrounds.
This program prepares you for that experience with certification in two areas:
- Childhood education (grades 1-6)
- Students with disabilities (grades 1-6)
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of elementary school teachers is projected to grow 7% from 2020 to 2030. Due to the nature of our inclusive program, our dual certification will greatly enhance your job prospects.
New York State Education Department (NYSED) issued teaching certificates are highly valued throughout the US, allowing for a reciprocity process in all 50 states.

Becoming a great educator means gaining practical experience in real elementary school classrooms. Brockport has strong ties to the local education community to ensure a quality learning experience for our students.
The first three phases require at least 50 hours of hands-on learning in a variety of settings. In the final phase, students have a full-time mentored clinical internship with an experienced teacher who will assist you as you grow and prepare for a fulfilling career as a childhood educator.
