If you are interested in furthering your preparation to teach in urban settings you need to take the following additional courses, in the following order:

EDU442 should be taken as early as possible in your program.
EDE446 needs to be taken the semester preceding student teaching.
ED440 & ED441 need to be taken during the year when you are student teaching.
ED468 needs to be taken the summer after you complete your student teaching.

1. This enhancement does not lead to any additional NYS certification.
2. Recipients of a 5th Year in Teaching Scholarship are required to complete an action research project in their first and second year of teaching (registering each spring for 1 credit of ED492: Field Study in Education).

Other Requirements:

In addition to the coursework indicated above, in order to graduate and to receive the certification(s)/licensure (if any) you are seeking this program has additional requirements. Please note that in some cases, while our program will provide you with all the academic experiences required for the certification you seek, there may be some additional requirements that you will have to complete independently and outside of our program in order to be granted that certification/licensure (ex: completing a certain number of years of mentored experiences). When that is the case, we have listed these requirements but also indicated that they are not a graduation requirement.
