Special Education Graduate Programs
There are several programs for graduate study in the area of special education at CMU. These programs include a master's degree program and several other types of graduate programs.
Master of Arts in Special Education
A master's degree program, Master of Arts in Special Education
, is available for students who have a Michigan Elementary or Secondary Provisional, Permanent, or Life certificate or special education endorsement, and want advanced study in special education. Within the electives on the master's degree program, a graduate student may decide to take courses toward an additional endorsement in the areas of cognitive impairment, emotional impairment, specific learning disability, or autism. Or a graduate student (in consultation with an advisor) may select other courses that would provide expertise in areas that would be beneficial for a special education teacher or teacher consultant.
