Program Description

Master of Arts in Special Education

Guided InstructorThe Masters of Arts in Special Education Program (MASE) is an innovative program designed to prepare teachers for the 460 Special Education Modified (Mild/Moderate) license. The MASE allows candidates to teach special education (grades K-12th) while earning a degree and working toward full licensure. We believe the juncture between coursework and support while teaching in the real world, provides our candidates with the skills and contextual understanding of what it takes to be successful in the special education classroom. Instruction for the MASE is delivered using a tightly sequenced 2 1/2 year-30 credit hour cohort model. A new cohort begins each year.

Students are required to take the Middle Grades Content Knowledge praxis test (0146 or 5146) or the Elementary Content Knowledge test (0014 or 5014) when applying.

All fees listed in the Graduate Bulletin will apply to graduate degree-seeking students. Please consult the bulletin for additional information.
