Special Education Credential
The Special Education Credential curriculum prepares educators to recognize and respond to the individual differences among students with special education needs. Upon completion of this program, students earn an Education Specialist Credential in Mild/Moderate Disabilities.
This program is available as an add-on to any of our Master of Arts in Teaching and Master of Education in Advanced Instruction programs, and it does require the completion of additional coursework. The Special Education Credential can also be taken independently of our advanced degree program by California credentialed educators.
Credential program requirements vary by program track:
- Master of Arts in Teaching
- Master of Arts in Teaching with Teaching Credential
- Master’s of Education in Advanced Instruction
