The School of Education offers two graduate programs that prepare students to become teachers of the Blind and Visually Impaired. For those who do not hold NYS certification, the long program in Blind and Visually Impaired program leads to dual certification in Childhood Education and Blind and Visually Impaired. The short program requires the candidate to hold an appropriate NYS certification upon admission and graduation and leads to certification in Blind and Visually Impaired only.

Graduates of the Blind and Visually Impaired program will be prepared to teach learners who are blind or visually impaired in diverse PreK-12 settings including residential schools for the blind, classroom programs and itinerant teaching settings in public and private schools.
