Degrees Offered:

Elementary Inclusive Education and Teaching Student with Disabilities

Format: Campus

Program Description:

The dual certification program is designed for students who do not hold any teaching certification. This 52-point M.A. program builds upon the 40-point Elementary Inclusive Program. After completing the 40-point program, students enroll in a special one semester critical special education core that offers capstone courses toward the Teaching Students with Disabilities certification (grades 1-6). The program prepares teachers for co-teaching, planning differentiated curriculum, work-ing in diverse cultural contexts, collaborative team planning, and community-based student advocacy and problem-solving. This focus builds upon the foundation in equity, social justice and multicultural pedagogy from the Elementary Inclusive Program.
