About Our Program

The Master of Science in Education, Concentration in Special Education graduate program - 100% online is designed to help career special educators upgrade their skills, become informed about new ideas in special education, and prepare for curriculum leadership roles in public and private schools and settings.

Our graduate programs builds upon teacher preparation in the Education Specialist Preliminary and Clear Credential Programs.

For the online and hybrid course (that are part of a hybrid or 100% online program), there is a $33 per unit student distance fee that is added to the students' costs. This fee is NOT refundable.
