Program Description:

Welcome to the Department of Special Education at Pfeiffer University.

The Masters of Arts in Teaching-Special Education (MAT-SPED) is a 45 semester hour degree program. The program is designed to prepare special education teachers to provide research-based instruction and behavior supports to facilitate the academic growth of students with mild disabilities who receive instruction in the North Carolina Standard Curriculum. The MAT-SPED Program will lead to recommendation for North Carolina licensure in Special Education-General Curriculum. Students who complete Phase I and pass the required Praxis II tests will be recommended for the
Standard Professional I license. With completion of Phase II of the MAT-SPED degree and with the two years of successful teaching, students will be recommended for the Advanced (“M”) license.

Add-on licensure
Persons who hold a North Carolina license in another teaching area and have at least three years experience as a teacher may be recommended for licensure upon successful completion of SPED 602 and 15 semester hours in Specialty Courses.

Persons who already hold a North Carolina license in a teaching area but who
do not have classroom experience must complete SPED 602, SPED 621, and
the 15 semester hours in the Specialty Courses.
