Adolescent Special Education

The Advanced Certificate in Adolescent Special Education enables teachers with secondary certification in a content area (e.g., social studies, math, English, science) to obtain New York State certification as a Secondary Special Education Content Area Specialist. Pace University is one of few universities in New York State to offer the courses required for this additional, and highly desirable, certification.

This 18 credit post-masters program will prepare adolescent teachers to educate all students in inclusive secondary classes. Graduates of Pace's MST program who have taken ED 672 & ED 684 only need 12 additional credits. All courses are 3 credits.
