The College of Education, Information and Technology offers one of the broadest arrays of teacher education, counseling, administration, technology and library science programs in New York state and provides a supportive and enriching learning environment. Students can choose from bachelor’s, master’s and certificate programs offered by seven distinguished departments: Counseling and Development; Curriculum and Instruction; Computer Science and Management Engineering; Educational Leadership and Administration; Health, Physical Education and Movement Science; Special Education and Literacy; and Communication Sciences and Disorders. With an emphasis placed on student-centered education, our programs focus on various stages of a child's development, including infancy, pre-school, elementary school, middle school and high school. The College is also home to the ALA-accredited Palmer School of Library and Information Sciences.
Our specialized TEAC-accredited education courses are taught by seasoned faculty who work closely with district administrators and teachers to facilitate the placement of our students. Field-based experiences complement traditional in-class learning and provide our students with a practical knowledge of the realities of the classroom. As an established leader of contemporary educational initiatives and trends, the College continually integrates cutting-edge instructional techniques into its curricula to reflect the ever-evolving nature of academics. The College has formed numerous partnerships with local schools, clinics and rehabilitation centers.
