The dual programs for prospective teachers provide a broad general education (the Liberal Arts Core of the College of Arts and Sciences), depth in the content area to be taught, and professional coursework and field experiences focusing on the skills and knowledge necessary to teach students from diverse backgrounds and with varying abilities. Students in the dual programs complete a program of study offered jointly by the College of Arts and Sciences and the School of Education: English education; mathematics education; science education (biology, chemistry, earth science, or physics); or social studies education. Students also complete the requirements for a College of Arts and Sciences major in the subject area. In order to meet the academic requirements for New York State certification to teach in the academic areas of English, mathematics, science or social studies, dual enrollment in both the College of Arts and Sciences and the School of Education is required. Completion of all College of Arts and Sciences requirements (including the Liberal Arts Core with courses from specific categories and a major in one of the listed content areas), combined with 37-40 credits of education courses (including methods and student teaching), for a total of 124-127 credits, are required. Some students may need to complete total program credits that are slightly greater than 124-127.
