Graduate Education Meets Jesuit Ideals

Our graduate education academic programs offer a variety of degrees based on your interests and professional goals.

If you hold a current NYSED initial certification and are seeking professional certification in the same field, these certifications might be the path for you. Options include Childhood (Grades 1-6); Adolescent (Grades 7-12); Dual Childhood/Special Education (Grades 1-6); and Dual Adolescent/Special Education (Grades 7-12).

Additional Certification: The Master of Science in Education II (MSEd II)

Graduate Education Courses

Depending on your next professional step, your courses will include everything from assessment strategies to literacy to linguistics.

Our graduate education faculty have spent decades in the classroom and in school leadership positions. They bring diverse, innovative and effective strategies to your educational and professional toolbox.

I treasure being able to make connections and share the connections that I already have with a current Le Moyne student, and I look forward to participating in the program again. Le Moyne was such a special place for me as a student, and being able to contribute to the community after I have graduated is such a wonderful way to say thank you to the place and the people that helped shape me into the person I am.”
