The Special Education Department offers several certification options. Details regarding each Special Education certification can be found on-line under Majors and Programs.
The Master’s in Education degree program is designed for students who already have an undergraduate degree and a valid Pennsylvania Instructional I certification or are working towards a Pennsylvania Instructional PK-8 or 7-12 certification.
This graduate program provides the student with extensive preparation for working students with special needs in the classroom. The program has a dual focus, the preparation of special education teachers and the development of master teachers remaining in the regular education classroom. The required courses are determined during the initial advising conference. Students are required to complete at least 36 graduate credit hours.
