Your Passion to Improve Education and the Quality of Life for all Children Starts Here
The University of Cincinnati’s Master of Education in Special Education program is designed for classroom teachers like you who are passionate about not only improving learning outcomes but also the quality of life for children with special needs. Advocates and general teachers seeking to gain a greater understanding of how to effect change for all students may also want to pursue this transformative degree.
Special education teachers use various techniques to promote learning. Depending on the student, teaching methods can include intensive individualized instruction, problem-solving assignments, and small-group work. These educators develop transition plans which outline specific steps to prepare students for all grade levels and on into college. Teachers work closely with parents to inform them of their children’s progress and suggest techniques to promote learning outside of school. The overall mission of the UC Master of Education in Special Education program is to provide students with special needs with qualified teachers so that more and more students can be included in everyday classrooms.
Evidence-based teaching and strategy allow these teachers to take special education students to the next level. As a classroom teacher who is passionate about improving the education and quality of life for all children, you’ll be exposed to theory and practice through a rigorous curriculum and can graduate as a highly prepared Special Educator prepared to meet the unique needs of students with disabilities.
