  • Professional certification: You will be eligible for initial certification immediately upon graduation. After three years of teaching, you will be eligible for professional certification.

  • Undergraduate degree: Earn a professional degree in geology, history, English, chemistry, etc. (in case you decide not to teach).

  • Peace of mind: Once employed as a New York State teacher, you don’t have to worry about completing a master’s degree at night or during the summers within five years.

  • Save money: Save money by paying undergraduate tuition rates for the first 12 graduate credits.

  • Qualifications: Be considered a much more qualified candidate for a teaching position than a person with a four year degree. Graduates will have a professional degree with extensive education courses at the graduate level.
