Outstanding, academically successful (minimum of 3.2 GPA), and highly motivated Marist undergraduate students in Psychology and the Dual-Certificate education program may consider applying to the five-year program which combines the Psychology in Childhood 1-6/Students with Disabilities 1-6 undergraduate program with the M.S. in Education program. Marist students in the five-year program will receive a B.S. in Psychology, earning a New York State Initial Teaching Certificate in Childhood Education 1-6/Students with Disabilities grades 1-6, as well as an M.S. in Education. The five-year program is a 36-credit graduate program. In this program candidates complete 12 credits of graduate courses starting in the spring semester of their junior year, prior to the completion of the B.S. degree program. Student teaching will be completed in the Spring semester of their senior year as part of the B.S. degree requirement. The remaining 24 credits are completed in the fifth year, with graduate student status. Admission to this program is granted to qualified applicants in the fall semester of their junior year.
