Master of Education in Special Education Eligible for IR/Credential
The Master of Education in Special Education (Eligible for Credential) is a cross-categorical program. It is designed for any individual interested in the education of children with special needs in the K-12 setting who wishes to seek a teaching certificate. The format and courses of the state and regionally accredited program are tailored to meet the needs of the adult learner and to maximize strengths that the student already possesses. Courses are taught by experts in their respective fields who share knowledge and experience in areas of learning disabilities, emotional and behavioral disabilities, and other physical and cognitive impairments. Opportunities are provided to apply concepts, theories, and research throughout the program. Assignments within each course guide students through observational and practice-based experiences. Students must have access to a K-12 special education classroom to complete the program assignments. Graduates of the program are prepared to work with special needs populations and implement individualized educational plans to accommodate the students' various learning needs. Students must be prepared to complete a full-time 16 week student teaching component at the end of the program. This student teaching experience must be completed with a certified special education teacher. The student should consult the Grand Canyon University Catalog and academic advisor to obtain information regarding current policies and procedures inherent in a teacher credentialing program.
