What makes our program stand out from the rest?
St. Joseph’s College was the first on Long Island to offer a 36-credit Master of Arts in Infant/Toddler Early Childhood Special Education leading to New York State provisional certification. Our program focuses on a collaborative perspective and includes faculty from multidisciplinary backgrounds which offers a unique learning experience. We emphasize the interrelated development of knowledge, understanding, sensitivity and skills that best prepares students to be effective teachers of children from birth to second grade, and to work with their families and other professionals.
