Exceptional Children & Youth MEd, 4+1

Education

 

The Master of Education (M.Ed.) in Exceptional Children and Youth degree program is designed to develop professional educators committed to careers that involve children, youth, and adults with disabilities. Graduates are prepared to work as special education teachers, education consultants, and educational technology specialists.

The traditional Master’s Program track is appropriate for teachers with a teaching certificate in either general or special education who wish to develop advanced knowledge and skills. The degree track also may be suitable for individuals who are not teachers but have other experience in the disabilities field and wish to pursue an advanced degree only. For previously certified teachers, the traditional degree track also may be a path to a second certificate in special education.

The Master’s Plus Certification Program (MPCP) is appropriate for individuals who seek to acquire advanced knowledge and skills while also obtaining their first teaching certificate.

Current UD undergraduate students can be considered for admission to the 4+1 BS in Early Childhood Education/MEd in Exceptional Children and Youth, the 4+1 BS in Elementary Teacher Education/MEd in Exceptional Children and Youth, or the 4+1 BS in a secondary education major/MEd in Exceptional Children and Youth.

The Online Master’s Program is appropriate for teachers with a teaching certificate in either general or special education who wish to develop advanced knowledge and skills.
