Special Education Online Master's Degree and LD Endorsement

The Master of Arts in Special Education degree program with an endorsement in learning disabilities (LD) is designed for highly committed and competent teachers in K-12 settings who have the skills, knowledge and dispositions to become professional leaders, expert practitioners and effective collaborators. You will learn research-validated methods and evidence-based practices, but equally important, you will have opportunities to apply those methods in authentic contexts to foster deep understanding and critical reflection. Throughout the master's program, you will engage in clinical projects and practicums that provide opportunities to engage in inquiry and to reflect on teaching practice with the support, feedback and collaboration of the teaching faculty. Courses are taught by special education program faculty members who have extensive experience as researchers, teacher educators and special education classroom teachers.
