Master of Arts in Teaching - Special Education
In collaboration with local school districts, the College of Education offers an intensive teacher education program for those seeking initial licensure in special education with authorizations at either the early childhood/elementary levels or the middle school/high school levels. The special education program is offered at the Eugene and Forest Grove campuses.
Students will complete all the requirements of the special educator program and participate in a capstone student-teaching experience for 12-18 weeks. Upon completion of the program, students will receive the master of arts in teaching degree and be eligible for SPED licensure.
The program design is customized for students who continue to work as paraeducators during the program, for those on restricted licenses, or for those without extensive work experience in a special education setting.
