The purpose of the Master of Education: Special Education K-12 is to offer currently licensed educators an opportunity to complete a program of study at the graduate level to obtain a SPED K-12 license. The coursework and related assessments will equip educators to work with learners with disabilities in the K-12 educational environment. This program was developed in alignment with the Arkansas Teaching Standards and the Council for Exceptional Children (CEC) standards. Candidates pursing certification in the state of Arkansas must meet the requirements as set forth by the state of Arkansas in order to receive licensure. It is incumbent upon students from other states to determine the licensing requirements in their state.

Candidates are required to complete 30 hours of online coursework for the master’s degree. Courses and assessments are aligned with supporting frameworks and professional standards. This program can be completed in as little as 18 months.
