M.Ed. in Special Education Programs
Are you interested in pursuing Ohio licensure as an intervention specialist at the graduate level? If so, our on-campus licensure programs are just for you. You will take licensure coursework as part of a master’s degree program in special education.
Are you looking for the flexibility of completing your master’s degree entirely online? Expand your expertise in general special education methods and practices or choose specialized preparation in assistive technology or autism spectrum disorders.
Online Graduate-Level Certificate Programs
Do you desire specialized training in a focused area of study through the convenience of an online program? Consider one of our 15-credit hour graduate certificate programs taught by tenure track faculty and seasoned practitioners. We currently offer certificate programs in Assistive Technology and Autism Spectrum Disorders. Students in the certificate programs take one course per semester for five semesters as part of an online cohort of learners that moves through the program coursework together.
Graduate Assistantships Available
Each year, the School of Intervention Services offers a limited number of graduate assistantships to degree-seeking students engaged in full-time graduate study. To receive full consideration for an assistantship beginning in fall semester, submit an SIS Assistantship Application by February 1.
