Curriculum

Required Credits (30 minimum)

Our online Master of Education in Special Education degree consists of a minimum of 30 credit hours completed in a 2-year sequence. Each of the course offerings are designed to maximize individual engagement through relevant, interactive, and collaborative instruction.  

The proposed program of studyhas a cohesive framework of courses that are well grounded in important theoretical studies; a progressive sequence of field-based/experiential learning opportunities to allow for the application of such theoretical models in the school environment; and an integrated research requirement that serves the program’s capstone experiences.
