Special Education Concentration Information


The goal of the Graduate Program in Special Education is to prepare competent and caring professionals who are able to make connections and create meaning in all aspects of their work. The licensure program offers experiences for students to collaborate with other adults and take on the responsibilities of a special educator. Hallmarks of the program are the case study approach, the strong emphasis on practicum experiences, and the training in collaboration.

Master of Education or Certificate of Advanced Graduate Studies programs may lead to Vermont teacher licensure or endorsement as Special Educator. Students may also design a M.Ed. or a C.A.G.S. program with a concentration in general special education.  Students may choose 18 credits in Special Education electives or may add the Special Educator additional endorsement.  After the Special Educator license, students may also pursue an additional endorsement for Consulting Teacher.  A Master’s is required for the Consulting Teacher endorsement.

C.A.G.S. Coursework


This thirty credit certificate is designed in conjunction with the advisor.  This CAGS may include coursework for an additional endorsement as a Special Educator or a Consulting Teacher.
