Certificate of Advanced Study Programs

In the School of Education,  C.A.S. students must complete 60 graduate credits, at least half of them at Syracuse University. A minimum of 30 credits must be in the student area of specialization, and from nine to 12 credits should be taken in an outside area. Students must maintain a B average.

The program of study must be approved before the student completes 45 credits. All C.A.S. students must take a six-hour qualifying examination in their field of specialization and complete a project, which usually coincides with one of more field experiences. To receive the C.A.S., students must complete at least three years of employment in their respective fields of specialization (except the Certificate of Disabilities Studies).

View the C.A.S. "OrangeBook" student handbook for more information.
