Enrollment in all teacher education programs follows the guidelines for "Admission to Teacher Education Programs" found in this catalog.  Applicants who do not yet meet all admissions criteria should consult with the department.

This program is designed for students who have earned a baccalaureate degree in an area other than career and technical education (CTE) from an accredited college or university, and intend to complete the coursework required for New York State certification as a career and technical teacher.

This postbaccalaureate teacher certification program prepares career and technical teachers for teaching positions in high schools, vocational schools, technical institutes, correctional facilities, and community colleges. It provides theoretical and practical preparation in planning, instructing, and managing the learning environment for students who have or will have extensive work experience in a specific trade.

After successfully completing the teacher certification program and passing required New York State teacher certification exams, students are eligible to apply for New York State certification through the Teacher Certification Office, Chase Hall 222. No degree or certificate is awarded by Buffalo State.

This program is offered during the evening at Buffalo State. Some courses are offered via interactive distance learning at off-campus BOCES sites.

Financial Assistance: For financial aid purposes, students are considered fifth-year undergraduates, eligible for undergraduate loans.

Admission Requirements:

  1. A bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university in an area other than career and technical education, with a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 (4.0 scale).
  2. Minimum of one year of work experience in a CTE area.

In addition, all applicants should review the Admission to a Graduate Program section in this catalog.
