SUNY-Buffalo State

Masters of Science in Multidisciplinary Studies for Educators in American - International Schools


The Master of Science degree in Multidisciplinary Studies is one of the 40 graduate programs offered by SUNY-Buffalo State. The program is designed for individuals with unique professional and educational objectives not readily met by traditional master’s degree programs. Numerous national as well as international educators enroll in this degree program.

The International Graduate Programs for Educators Office of SUNY-Buffalo State is responsible for the Master of Science (M.S.) degree program in Multidisciplinary Studies for American/International Schools educators. It works in partnership with the Counselor Training Center to offer the degree. CTC participants may include up to six credits from EDU 594 or 596 courses, towards SUNY Buffalo State's Masters of Science in Multidisciplinary Studies for Educators in American-International Schools.

All CTC courses will be considered equivalent to SUNY - Buffalo State's:
EDU 594: Strategies for Academic Engagement in American/International Schools
(3 credits awarded per EDU 594 course)

Regional association conferences and workshops offered for credit by SUNY-Buffalo State through AASSA, AISA, CEESA, EARCOS, MAIS, NESA, and the Tri Association provide another opportunity to complete graduate coursework for the degree. Students are allowed to include up to six (6) of the required 30 graduate credit hours through conference and/or workshop courses. Courses offered through the Principals’ Training Center (PTC) and the Academy of International School Heads (AISH) also can be used as part of your degree program.

Numerous American/International schools host the same degree program on site throughout the school year over a two-three year period of time. Appropriate staff of the school determines a plan that best meets the needs of the host school educators. Courses offered through the Counselor Training Center (CTC) and Principals’ Training Center (PTC) can be used as part of the on site degree program.

The awarding of the Master of Science Degree does not provide Certification or Licensure although the courses offered are frequently applicable towards certification in most states. United States colleges/universities do not “grant” certification. Certification or Licensure is obtained through State Education Departments.

For more information regarding U.S. certification and/or licensure the following website is linked to state certification offices:   http://wdcrobcolp01.ed.gov/Programs/EROD/org_list.cfm?category_cd=SEA

CTC fees are $450 per 3-credit course toward SUNY-Buffalo State credit and are payable upon signing up for course credit onsite during the CTC Institutes.
