The mission of Mason's Special Education program is to improve the lives, productivity, and education of persons with disabilities.
A variety of options are available at Mason for students to learn more about working with individuals with disabilities. Coursework is available for both undergraduates and graduates in teacher licensure areas as well as non-teacher licensure fields that prepare professionals working with individuals across the lifespan. The programs provide professionals with the specialized knowledge, skills, and dispositions needed to support individuals with special needs.
