Adolescent Special Education Certificate
Campus: NYC, Westchester
This 18-credit post-master’s program prepares teachers of adolescents to educate all students in inclusive secondary classes. It enables teachers with secondary certification in a content area (e.g., social studies, math, English, science) to obtain New York State Certification as a Secondary Special Education Generalist with Content Area Specialist extension. Pace University is one of the few universities in New York to offer the courses required for this additional, and highly desirable, certification.
We require the GRE-Graduate Record Examination—General Test. Performance on the GRE will not outweigh the other required criteria in your application.
