Formerly a hybrid program with a mix of online and in-person sessions, this program is now offered as a 100% online program only.
Meeting the needs of diverse learners
We understand that our world needs teachers who are trained in critical reflection and are dedicated to improving opportunities for all students. We strive to create inclusive communities that value diversity as a strength.
We also understand the busy lives teachers lead as they seek the level of education required to reach their full potential, which is why our MSED in inclusive special education is offered as a 100% online program only.
In our program, teachers will learn to differentiate instruction and assessment
to meet the needs of students with the full range of exceptionalities, including students with disabilities, English language learners, students who have experienced trauma and students who may be gifted.
Three certification tracks available
Each of these programs meets master's degree requirements for professional certification in New York state.
Students integrate social justice into their practice through respect for diversity, dignity and worth, and creating learning experiences that are mindful of a full range of diversity.
Advanced certificate program also available
We also offer a 12-hour program leading to the Advanced Certificate in Teaching Students with Exceptionalities
. The 100% online program can be completed in one year.
