Master’s Degrees

You may choose from several business degrees options that provide the opportunity to further develop your knowledge and competency in management and leadership.

We offer a variety of master’s degrees focusing on topics in teaching and learning.  The three fully online programs do not lead directly to teacher certification, but may be able to fulfill the graduate degree requirement for New York State Professional Certification.  The MAT program leads to Initial Certification and requires face-to-face classroom experience in New York State.

The M.A. in liberal studies is an appropriate choice for those interested in pursuing an advanced degree that focuses on a specific question, problem or theme. This degree is interdisciplinary and provides options for a thesis or creative final project.

Our policy degree options provide you with the opportunity to develop skills in policymaking, implementation and analysis and help to build a greater understanding of the connections among federal, state, local and organizational policies and processes.
