Through a joint program with the University at Buffalo, students may work toward a doctor of philosophy degree in special education.
This program is designed for those who already hold a masters degree in special education. A combination of coursework, internships, field experiences, and original research provides a comprehensive background in special education for those who aspire to academic appointments in universities or colleges, or leadership roles in school systems.
Students interested in the program should contact Dr. Sharon Raimondi who holds a joint appointment in both programs. Phone: (716) 645-2455 ext. 1143.
Andrew Hashey, student in the Buffalo State-University at Buffalo joint doctoral program in special education, was one of 11 students chosen to participate in the 2013-14 DR Doctoral Student Scholars.
The Division for Research of the Council for Exceptional Children (CEC-DR) announced the scholars names, each selected through a nationally competitive process to participate in the 2013-2014 DR Doctoral Student Seminars in Special Education Research (DRDSS). DRDSS is an online seminar and discussion series designed to foster connections among students at different universities and contribute to raising the standard of research in the field through sustained inquiry into the question, “What makes for excellence in special education research?
According to Sharon Raimondi, director of the joint doctoral program, scholars were selected on the basis of their dissertation research. "They will participate in a year long mentoring program. Andrew will be working with some of the top researchers in the field of special education."
