    Currently, I have the middle school license in Ohio. If I got a Master’s in Special Education through University of Cincinnati would I be able to get the K-12 Special Education License in Ohio?

  • Doretha W. says:

    Approximately how long would a Master’s in Special Education through University of Cincinnati take for a working educator. Are there specific timelines and what happens when you’re in another time zone?

  • Jeannie Rosa says:

    Hello Doretha – It’s a pleasure to hear from you! Our program takes two years to complete and is considered a part-time program. One of the great things about online learning (and our program specifically) is that you can access your “classroom” at any time. In fact, the flexibility and convenience our program offers is what draws many students to us. As long as you have internet access your school work will be at your finger tips at any given time, regardless of the time zone. Please feel free to contact me at 800-226-0075 I would love the opportunity to discuss the program in greater detail with you!

    I have a B.S is Engineering and would like to get a masters in Education. Would this be possible to do online?

  • Kyle Wallace says:

    Hello Eddie – The UC Master of Education degree is not designed to be a licensure program, so if you are looking to start teaching, this program will not not the best fit for your future goals. Once you get a teaching license, our program can help you expand your knowledge and skills in order to take your classroom instruction to the next level. However, if you are seeking to simply obtain a Master of Education, our Curriculum & Instruction STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) program may be an option worth looking into. If you have any additional questions or wish to discuss your options please contact us at 800-226-0075 and one of our Enrollment Advisors will be able to assist you.
