Online Master of Education in Special Education Intervention

Licensure Track Available

The 10 course/30-credit, CAEP-accredited Online M.Ed. in Special Education Intervention program offers two tracks for licensed teachers and can be completed in 2 years 100% online.

Licensure track

The Licensure track, for non-Special Education teachers, is focused on core competencies aligned to CEC's Initial Preparation standards in K-12 Special Education.

Specifically, teachers will learn how to build, lead, and participate in Response to Intervention (RTI) and Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) programs and coordinate and deliver evidence-supported interventions in the areas of behavior, literacy, and numeracy. In the optional licensure track, students will learn about behavioral methods, literacy strategies, educational research, as well as additional topics.

Intervention track

The Intervention track is focused on building their skills in intervention and support. In this curriculum, teachers learn proven interventions that meet students at their learning level to support their success in standards-based classrooms, with minimal disruption, before they would need special education.
