Note to Non-majors
Students who are not currently enrolled as majors will not be given special permission to register for EXE classes.
The overwhelming number of EXE courses are open to majors only and we will not allow students to register in anticipation of being accepted into the major. Buffalo State students who are interested in our program but do not meet the requirement for major or premajor status can enroll in EXE 100, and EDF 202, 203, and 302 without being majors or premajors. In addition, they should see their current advisor and use information about general education requirements and concentration and distribution requirements to register for courses that will count once accepted into the major.
The special education and teaching bilingual exceptional individuals programs lead to a master of science in education degree and eligibility for New York State certification in special education. These graduate programs are designed for students with undergraduate majors in education or special education.
Graduates of the program typically obtain positions as teachers in resource rooms, self-contained classrooms, special schools, residential facilities, or as consultant teachers in general education settings.
