The University of Delaware’s online M.Ed. in Exceptional Children and Youth (Special Education) is designed to develop professional educators committed to careers that involve children, youth, and adults with disabilities. This program is appropriate for teachers with a teaching certificate in either general or special education who wish to develop advanced knowledge and skills. The program may also be appropriate for individuals who are not teachers but have other experience in the disability field and wish to pursue an advanced degree only.
For Delaware teachers, this program may be a path to a second certificate in special education as a Delaware Teacher of Exceptional Children Grades K-12 or a Delaware Teacher of Students with Autism or Students with Severe Intellectual Disabilities. For teachers outside of Delaware, we encourage you to contact your state certification office to determine whether this program may lead to special education certification.
