School of Education Programs
For undergraduates, the School of Education has the following teacher education programs that lead to initial New York State certification:
EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION is for students who wish to work or teach in a Birth - Grade 2 setting.
CHILDHOOD EDUCATION (QUEST) is for students who wish to become childhood teachers (grades 1 to 6).
ADOLESCENT EDUCATION is for students who wish to become middle or high school teachers of a particular subject (grades 7 to 12).
DANCE EDUCATION is for students who wish to become dance teachers in grades pre K to 12.
MUSIC EDUCATION is for students who wish to become music teachers in grades pre K to 12.
These programs require that students apply after they have been accepted to Hunter. The application process involves an online application, an on-site writing test, and an interview. Students who would like an admissions decision in time for registration for the following term should apply by October 15 for the spring term and by March 15 for the fall term. Other applications are accepted on a rolling basis.
