You can earn degree, license, or certificate concentration in special education in the area of Intervention Specialist (DL).

The master’s program is focused on providing teacher-leaders in the area of special education. At the doctoral level, the program is focused on providing leading scholars for service in academic careers.

The special education program provides small classes, talented faculty and extensive field clinical experiences, ranging from a professional cohort in the second year, to internship work in the fourth year.
