MEd in Education: Autism Spectrum Disorders
Autism Spectrum Disorders
In coordination with the Department of Applied Psychology, Antioch University New England offers an MEd added to the Certificate in Autism Spectrum Disorders. This program attracts classroom teachers, special educators, parents and nonschool-based educators of all types. Whether you want to be a better advocate for your child, provide support services for children on the spectrum or learn more about how to support these diverse learners in your classroom, this program can get you started.
Two delivery models are available.
Students may choose between adding the MEd after completion of the ASD certificate or you may do both programs concurrently. The only difference is in the number of semesters of study required. The number of credits and course requirements are the same for both delivery models.
Add a Master’s of Education Degree to your ASD certificate
You can add the MEd in four additional semesters. This is a 33-credit degree program. In addition to your 12 credits of ASD course work, you will add the education courses.
Master’s of Education Degree concurrent with ASD Certificate
You may also enroll concurrently in the MEd and ASD certificate programs. This is a 33-credit, five-semester program. Students will begin in the summer preceding their ASD coursework.
Antioch University, and therefore New England, is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission and a member of the North Central Association. All degree programs are also approved by the New Hampshire Postsecondary Commission.
