A combined bachelor’s and graduate degree program allows students to pursue an undergraduate major in combination with a School of Education (SOE) graduate program through an early admission process. The list below is SOE combined programs that, if admitted, will allow students an opportunity to begin graduate work while completing their undergraduate degree. The Great Dane Teacher Pathway connects the majors with master's degrees in teaching.
BS Human Development/MS Special Education and Literacy II* - Great Dane Teacher Pathway
* New York State Education Department recently changed regulations for certification in both Special Education/Teaching Students with Disabilities & Literacy. They have eliminated "grade band" certification areas (i.e. grades 1-6) and will only offer certificates in these areas for "All Grades" (pre-k - grade 12). We will be restructuring the MS in Special Education & Literacy II in response to these new regulations. Please continue to check the School of Education website for updates to the program and the certifications it provides: www.albany.edu/education/programs
