Blind and Visually Impaired
The School of Education offers two separate graduate programs that prepare students to become teachers of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing and the Blind and Visually Impaired. For those who do not hold NYS certification, these programs lead to dual certification in Childhood Education and either Deaf and Hard of Hearing or Blind and Visually Impaired. Both programs offer two tracks: a dual certification track for those with no NYS certification and a track for those with NYS certification.
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.
