Maryland, like the rest of the nation, is experiencing
a critical shortage of special education teachers.
The Master of Education in special education is an
applied professional program that addresses the urgent
educational needs of communities nationwide. The
degree program is designed for professionally certified
teachers seeking advanced degrees and the professional
skills required to teach students with disabilities.
The program emphasizes collaboration and consultation,
translation of effective instruction, assessment,
management research into practice, and cross-categorical
rather than disability-specific approaches.
