M.Ed. in Education of Exceptional Persons Plus Special Education Certification (Option 1)

The Certification and M.Ed. program is structured to address the educational needs of graduate students who hold another teaching certificate and wish to obtain special education certification while working toward an M.Ed. degree in Education of Exceptional Persons.

Students working toward a master’s degree may select a thesis or non-thesis option at an appropriate point in their program of studies. The department will exercise final judgment over the exact program of studies required for any student. All M.Ed. candidates must successfully complete a comprehensive examination as the terminal experiences in their course of studies.

Applications are currently being accepted on a rolling basis.

Recent program changes are not yet reflected in the currently published Graduate Catalog.

Prospective graduate students who currently hold teaching certification and are seeking additional certification in Special Education will develop a program of study based upon their past coursework. Interested students may refer to additional information provided in the EDEX Graduate Student Handbook.
