In addition to fulfilling educational studies, the New York State Education Department requires that all prospective teachers being recommended for teacher education programs receive instruction in:
No degree is conferred for teacher education, school counseling, school psychology or school leadership candidates without the completion of all of these requirements.
Upon the successful completion of a Hofstra state-approved teacher education program, students are eligible for the University’s recommendation for New York State certification. A request for recommendation must be submitted to the Office of Educational Support Services the semester in which the student is graduating. Students who apply directly to New York State for certification are responsible for learning about and satisfying the certification requirements set by the state. It should be noted that such requirements may differ from those in Hofstra s registered program.
