Special Education Virtual Webinar for Prospective Students
On Thursday, February 10, join us online at 4:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m EST for virtual webinar.
This MS in Special Education, Mild-to-Moderate Disabilities concentration is for those seeking certification to work with students who have mild-to-moderate disabilities, including emotional, intellectual, and learning disabilities. Candidates learn and apply specialized techniques to support these students in a range of educational settings and complete two field experiences.
Two focus areas are available: elementary/middle school (grades 1–8) and secondary/adult levels (grades 6–12). All candidates complete two field experiences: the Graduate Student Project (with presentation) and the Internship Portfolio. Graduates are eligible for Maryland state certification in special education, which is reciprocated by many other states.
In addition, the program offers a Special Education Teacher Immersion Training cohort for current Montgomery County Schools paraeducators or long-term substitutes. With flexible enrollment options for full- or part-time study, the program can be completed in as little as six semesters, although eight is typical. Coursework must be completed within five years.
