SUNY Buffalo State offers the option of graduate credit for professional development for workshops to international educators. The cost is $130.00 per graduate semester credit. If you are interested, please ask the appropriate administrator or instructor to send a syllabus proposal to Dr. Susan Keller-Mathers at email@example.com. The required syllabus format with explanatory information in italics is provided to the right. Providing all requisite information at once will expedite the process.
Our office will submit the syllabus for evaluation to the Dean of the School of Education, Dean of the Graduate School, and Vice President of Academic Affairs. The syllabus should include all required information, including a rubric and CV, which must explicitly describe educational training experience in relation to the workshop topic in a succinct and concise manner. Syllabi must be submitted at least six weeks prior to the start of the workshop.
Every approved professional development course will be assigned the same course prefix and number, EDU 594. Course titles are generic (e.g., Advanced Strategies for International Educators) and different titles are used for one, two or three-credit courses. Course titles are changed each semester, so please do not use any old registration forms. Courses offered between August 1st-December 1st will be fall semester, December 2nd-May 1st will be spring semester and May 2nd-July 31st will be summer semester courses.
As soon as the course is approved, we will email you an information flyer that will explain how to earn credit. We will also email the course registration form to share with anyone interested in the option of credit. Individuals will need to submit a completed registration form, payment for the credit, and an unofficial copy of a diploma or transcript verifying the receipt of their undergraduate degree. Instructors or workshop hosts should collect these items and submit them in one packet or have participants submit their own registrations by the deadline indicated on the form to:
