The mission of the Master of Science in Special Education: Childhood program is to provide a quality educational experience that prepares candidates for distinguished careers in inclusive education, and for leadership roles in schools and communities. The special education programs develop the knowledge, skills, and dispositions special educators need in order to effectively teach all students, including those with exceptional learning needs.
The M.S. in special education dual initial certification program prepares non-certified graduate candidates who are pursuing childhood initial certification and certification to teach students with disabilities at the same developmental level, and results in the Master of Science in Special Education degree.
