The program is approved by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) and the Professional Standards Commission (PSC) and allows classroom teachers in Special Education General Curriculum (K-12) to earn an Masters in Special Education in four semesters (summer to summer) while continuing their teaching career. The program requires candidates to complete three domains of professional development that include 36 hours or 12 courses.
Each cohort of students, the group of candidates who start the program together, take all 12 courses together. The next new cohort will start in Fall 2016.
