Teacher Education Programs

In our teacher education program, three options are available.

 Initial-only

If you are seeking a certificate of advanced study from UB and an institutional recommendation for an initial teacher certificate issued by the New York State Education Department, you should consider the initial-only track. An initial teacher certificate allows you to begin teaching in public schools within New York State. The initial-only track is typically a one-year course of study.

Initial/professional If you are seeking a master's degree from UB and an institutional recommendation for initial and professional teacher certificates issued by the New York State Education Department, you should consider the initial/professional track. An initial teacher certificate allows you to begin teaching in public schools within New York State. The initial/professional track is typically a two-year course of study.
Professional
If you are seeking a master’s degree to advance your existing initial teacher certificate to a professional teacher certificate in the same area of certification, you should consider the professional track. Our Department of Learning and Instruction provides teacher education to prepare you to teach in public schools within New York State.
