Master of Education in Special Education Online Program

Program Links

A fully online program, the M.Ed. in Special Education is designed for individuals who currently hold a Georgia level four Certificate or equivalent in Special Education with certification in one of the following concentration areas:

      • Adaptive Curriculum 
      • General Curriculum

The special education master’s program can be completed in either one year (Sum/Fall/Spg/Sum) or over two years.

Within the M.Ed. Special Education program of study, the Transition Specialist Endorsement courses are not currently being offered.  Please continue to check this page for the latest program updates.

This master’s program courses are based upon the concept of developmentally appropriate practices and the value of diverse, intensive field experiences working with diverse student populations. Find out what you’ll learn to discover if it’s the right fit for you.

The program is approved by the Georgia Professional Standards Commission (PSC) and meets the PSC’s certificate upgrade requirements.

(Note: Individuals seeking initial certification and those who hold non-renewable or provisional teacher certification, should pursue the MAT degree Special Education rather than this Master in Education [M.Ed.] degree program.)
