Special Education Masters Admissions
An individual pursuing a special education Master's degree and/or endorsement/licensure in elementary or secondary education must hold a valid general education teaching certificate. Individuals pursuing nonteaching careers in public or private services, research, or professional roles related to children/youth/adults with disabilities and their families can be accepted as non-teaching Master's degree special education graduate students, but must hold bachelor's degrees and have appropriate experience in related fields.
