Your Passion to Improve Education and the Quality of Life for all Children Starts Here
University of Cincinnati’s Master of Education in Special Education (SPED) program is designed for special education teachers who are passionate about not only improving learning outcomes but also the quality of life for children with special needs. Advocates and classroom teachers seeking to gain a greater understanding of how to affect change for all students may also want to pursue this transformative degree.
Depending on the student, SPED teaching methods can include intensive individualized instruction, problem-solving assignments, and small-group work. Teachers work closely with parents to inform them of their children’s progress and suggest techniques to promote learning outside of school.
Evidence-based teaching strategies 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 you can graduate as a highly prepared Special Educator.
