B.S. / M.Ed. in Education with Special Education Certification
The B.S. / M.Ed. in Education with Special Education Certification provides the opportunity for exceptionally qualified students to earn both a Bachelor of Science and Master of Education degree. The second semester of their senior year, qualified students will take two graduate courses and receive graduate credit towards their master’s degree. Upon graduation, students need to take only 27 additional credits for their master’s degree. Students in the program will receive specific advising to assist them to complete all requirements in a timely fashion.
Candidates for admission should declare their intent to the Division of Teacher Education and Leadership (DTEL) as soon as possible so that an appropriate advisor can be assigned. All regular requirements for admission to the DTEL must be followed (see General Requirements). Upon successful admission to the DTEL, candidates will follow the advisement schedule to ensure that the final semester of their senior year includes the two graduate-level special education courses.
