Foundations and Social Advocacy

As an inclusive childhood education major, you’ll gain the knowledge, skills and experiences to teach children who have disabilities in grade 1-6 classrooms. The program draws on best practices to prepare teachers for all school environments with an emphasis on urban schools.

Student teaching and fieldwork provide real-world experience that brings classroom learning to life. Through our program, you’ll develop habits for lifelong learning, collaborate with professionals and families in high-need communities and promote equity and excellence.

The department also offers courses in multicultural and urban education, the role of gender in schooling and the relationship between schools and society.

Master’s degree programs in teaching students with disabilities for either grades 1-6 or 7-12 are available if you already have teaching certification.

If you wish to become a school building and school district leader or a school district business leader and have a master's degree, there are two programs that satisfy the requirements for a Certificate in Advanced Study (C.A.S.) in Educational Administration.

Demand for good teachers is high in this critically important field. Cortland has a stellar reputation for preparing great teachers and capable leaders.
