Our computer science (CS) education programs offer multiple paths to New York State teacher certification in computer science for preservice and in-service teachers, in the context of innovative research on K–12 computer science teaching and learning. Join our community of educators committed to providing high-quality computer science learning.
For in-service New York State teachers holding a certificate in another discipline, this initial certificate track provides qualification to teach CS in New York State public schools. You can complete this track at your own pace as a working professional.
This program builds on your expertise, experience, identity and commitments to grow into a new subject area. There are no content knowledge prerequisites, however the program will require you to complete college-level CS coursework and draw on existing knowledge in your current discipline.
