The Teaching, Learning, & Curriculum Department is pleased to announce a 50% tuition reduction for first-year students who apply and are accepted into the MS in special education program. Training in special education offers tremendous employment opportunities for students who hold bachelor’s degrees with a general education teaching credential. Other individuals interested in this program may need to obtain their general education teaching credential with dual enrollment in the master of teaching (MAT) degree using the MS as their major. The field of special education has vast shortages of educators, thus many special education candidates are hired in teaching positions prior to their degree completion.
This program enables candidates to understand and value diversity within a universal community. An emphasis on Christian compassion empowers a commitment to the general welfare of individual students, society, and the world through openness, understanding, and accommodation. Classes are offered over the Internet, on-campus during the academic year, and in summer sessions. These options allow candidates to minimize time away from their career, homes, and families by reducing the length of time required on campus. In addition to a quality educational experience, classes are small enough to provide a personal learning experience, promoting direct involvement between students, professors, and invited professionals.
If you are interested in this field of study, please contact the Teaching, Learning, & Curriculum Department today. There are still a few scholarships available. Telephone the department secretary, Nancy Miller, at 269-471-3465 or email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
