TCHBL-MSED - Teachers of Blind
NYSED Program Code
The School of Education offers graduate programs that prepare students to become teachers of the Blind and Visually Impaired. Graduates of the Blind and Visually Impaired program will be prepared to teach learners who are blind or visually impaired in diverse PreK-12 settings including residential schools for the blind, classroom programs and itinerant teaching settings in public and private schools.
The master’s degree in Blind and Visually Impaired offers two programs. Program 1 (Academic Plan: BVI-MSED) is for those who do not hold NYS certification and leads to dual certification in childhood education and blind and visually impaired. Program 2 (Academic Plan: TCHBL-MSED) is for those who hold NYS certification and leads to single certification in blind and visually impaired.
