Long Island University at Riverhead offers Graduate Education master’s degrees in Childhood Education, Teaching Students with Disabilities, Literacy Education, Advanced Certificate in Applied Behavior Analysis and certification in Childhood Education 1-6.
Major strengths of the programs are our excellent faculty, extensive
field placement opportunities, flexible course offerings, and expert
advising. Many of our students comment that their greatest benefits
are derived from the diverse backgrounds of their classmates, many
of whom are currently employed as professional teachers. The networking
experience within the classroom is ideal, as many of our professors
are administrators and principals in desirable school districts.
Students are expected to have earned a 2.75 cumulative grade point
average, or higher, in their undergraduate work. Graduate Education
students must show evidence of having taken the Liberal Arts and
Sciences Test (L.A.S.T.) prior to entry into the graduate program.
This is one of the New York State Certification Examinations. In
some instances students with exemplary undergraduate academic backgrounds
who are registered to take the exam may begin coursework as degree-seeking
students before the exam date.
