Education Leadership, MEd Concentration in Special Education Leadership
"The Special Education Leadership program is ideal for the working professional. What I liked most was how the coursework and assignments were relevant."
This 30-credit Special Education Leadership concentration (24-credit licensure component and 6 additional credits) is designed to provide training for educators who administer program implementation efforts for learners with exceptional needs. It is appropriate for those who have an interest in becoming special education directors, program coordinators, school building administrators, department chairs, or lead teachers; however, opportunities beyond special education also exist.
Participants who are admitted into the MEd in Education Leadership program who already have a master's degree and three years of teaching experience may complete the graduate certificate course work (24-credits) for the administration and supervision PK-12 license.
We are not accepting applications for this concentration at this time.
