The Master of Science in Education/Special Education
The Master of Science in Education/Special Education degree is for individuals with previous degrees who wish to work with students with special needs. Our program concentrations focus on current issues in special education, best practices for inclusive education, including law nondiscriminatory assessment, issues of cultural and linguistic diversity, classroom and behavioral adaptations, integration of new technologies, and how to collaborate with families and service providers.

Education Specialist (EdS) 
The Education Specialist is a postgraduate degree unique to the field of education, which is considered more advanced than a master’s degree but generally requires less coursework than a PhD or EdD. For professionals who already have a master’s degree, an EdS is an excellent pathway to reach the next level without the time or cost required for most doctoral degrees.
