SUNY Buffalo Program

Master's and Leadership Programs

The Office of the Deputy Head works to provide a quality graduate level education available to our present and future staff, as well as a unique opportunity for all teachers working in the Dominican Republic to have access, via CMS, to a state of the art master’s degree program. Additionally, we offer other advanced leadership degrees that may qualify staff for administrative certifications and leadership positions.

In an effort to build a new cohort of students for the Buffalo State graduate program that has been successful for recent graduates, we have reorganized course offerings allowing for the launch of a new leadership certificate program. This program creates a brand new group of emerging educational leaders in the Dominican Republic and at CMS.
