Master Teacher Program Special Education

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Graduate Programs

The master teacher program in special education is primarily designed to be a fifth year of study beyond the undergraduate preparation in special education. This online program provides for a continuation of studies initiated during undergraduate preparation. Students seeking basic teacher certification in special education may be eligible to complete certification requirements via the graduate program. However, while these graduate courses may be applied to meeting degree requirements, all requirements must be met for the Master of Education degree to be issued. Questions related to obtaining basic teacher certification in special education should be directed to the coordinator.

Graduate students in the master teacher program must complete courses in five areas including: 

  1. General Foundations of Special Education
  2. Research
  3. Core Courses in Special Education
  4. Practicum
  5. Portfolio or Thesis

The program permits students already holding the Certificate in Mentally and/or Physically Handicapped (M/PH) to develop state-of-the art competencies in the field of special education.
