M.S. in Special Education with the Preliminary Education Specialist Credential
California Lutheran University's M.S. in Special Education program is designed to prepare teachers to teach special education in elementary or secondary schools. Candidates will benefit from an integration of theoretical knowledge and an abundance of opportunities for practical application. Students can earn their Preliminary Education Specialist Credential in Mild/Moderate or Moderate/Severe disabilities. The credential programs are distinct from similar programs in the region due to the extensive personal support and empowerment training. Students who hold a Learning Handicapped of Severely Handicapped credential can earn a Resource Specialist Certificate. The program is offered at our main campus in Thousand Oaks.
