A Post Masters Certificate Program in Multicultural Education

The Educational Studies Department of the State University of New York at New Paltz offers a post-masters Certificate Program in Multicultural Education. This 15-credit program is designed for elementary, secondary or special subject teachers; school guidance counselors; and administrators who are interested in enhancing their cultural competencies in multicultural education.  It is also valuable for those working in higher education and the human services.

Designed for teachers who already have their masters degree, this certificate program enables educators to understand the ways in which race, gender, class, language, sexual orientation, religion, and physical/learning ability influence them as professionals, their students, and the educational process. In addition, it provides educators with the knowledge and skills needed for culturally-responsive teaching and leadership, and approaches for creating socially-just educational settings.

This post-masters certificate program also meets the needs of higher education professionals and those working in human service agencies seeking to strengthen their cross-cultural knowledge and skills. For more information go to www.newpaltz.edu/edstudies or contact Professors Terry Murray at (845) 257-2828 or Nancy Schniedewind at (845)257-2827.
