Special Education Advanced Certificate

art education at adelphi

For those who have a license, but want to help special needs students.

In addition to certification in Visual Art, students may wish to pursue Special Education teacher certification through Adelphi’s Advanced Certificate Programs. In most cases, some coursework and student teaching is waived for existing students. Along with other unique art offerings at Adelphi, this certificate gives a competitive edge in the job market.

The goal of this program is to prepare secondary school educators who currently hold a license in a content area to become certified in special education. Current secondary educators will be able to provide content related special education instruction and intervention to grades 7–12 students in an inclusive environment. In this program our candidates will be eligible for New York State certification in Adolescence Special Education grades 7–12.
