Enrollment in all teacher education programs follows the guidelines for "Admission to Teacher Education Programs" found in this catalog. Applicants who do not yet meet all admissions criteria should consult with the department.
All teacher education programs include a clinical/field component. If you have been convicted of a felony, your criminal history record may impede your ability to complete this program and/or become a NYS certified teacher. Please review Buffalo State's Admission of Persons with Prior Felony Convictions Policy.
Childhood education majors with concentrations in English, Mathematics, or Social Studies may choose to extend their teaching certification to grades 7 to 9. Extensions require additional credit hours, usually 3-6 credits, and a student teaching placement in seventh-ninth grade. Specific information regarding 7-9 extensions can be found in the Elementary Education, Literacy and Educational Leadership handbook.
