Education of the Visually Handicapped
Salus University College of Education and Rehabilitation offers a Master of Education degree program and a certificate program for Teachers of Children with Visual and Multiple Disabilities. These competency-based programs offer coursework and practical experiences that develop the necessary knowledge and skills required for the instruction of infants, children, and youth who are totally blind or visually impaired and those with multiple disabilities.
Students successfully completing the curriculum are prepared for certification by the state credentialing body in Pennsylvania. The master's degree program offers students the possibility of reciprocity of certification in other states.
Both programs are offered for part and full-time study, with coursework primarily online during the fall and spring semesters, and a ten week summer residency at Salus University for two summers.
