The Graduate Education Department strives to provide high quality programs for advancing professional degrees and opportunities for professional development. Students looking to pursue a Master of Education Degree will find a combination of face to face, online, and hybrid course offerings with a flexible schedule to accommodate professional educators in public and private sectors. The demand for special education services and teachers is on the rise as children with special needs are increasing being diagnosed and enrolled into special education programs earlier in life. To meet this need, the Graduate Education Department offers an online Master of Special Education Degree program. Within this program, candidates can earn an Autism Spectrum Disorder Endorsement or Special Education Supervisory Certificate.
