Graduate Programs

Page address: http://ed.mnsu.edu/sped/graduate_programs/

´╗┐Our graduate programs are completely online. We offer five licensure options—Autism Spectrum Disorders, Developmental Disabilities, Early Childhood Special Education, Emotional/Behavioral Disorders, and Learning Disabilities. Each can stand on its own, be an add-on to an undergraduate degree or an existing license, or become an emphasis for a master’s degree. Our licensure options fulfill the renewal requirements for the ABS license. We also offer a non-teaching Autism Spectrum Disorders certificate that provides related service providers, parents, and others the tools they need to be part of a successful team serving individuals with autism. 

DEADLINES FOR ADMISSION ARE APRIL 15 FOR SUMMER; JULY 15 FOR FALL; AND NOVEMBER 15 FOR SPRING.
