M.S. in Special Education: Severe or Multiple Disabilities
The graduate-level special education program at Fisher prepares teachers for distinguished careers in special education and is designed for those who are seeking a deeper understanding of special education laws and best practices, with a focus on students with severe or multiple disabilities.
Applicants to the program must hold initial dual certification in childhood/special education or adolescence/special education. The program includes a four-course module to build teacher leader skills in special education.
The 30 credit-hour (10 classes) master's program features integrated coursework and practicum and is completed in three semesters. Materials within classes are tailored to fit the specific grade levels (childhood or adolescence) you will teach.
The program is offered in a hybrid format with a combination of online and in-seat courses in a supportive learning environment.
The program can be used for NYS professional certification requirements. Additionally, the Severe or Multiple Disabilities Annotation will attach to your grade level initial certification.
