The Master of Arts degree in education with a concentration in special education provides the professional educator with advanced knowledge and skills in special education. This degree has many requirements in common with the Clear Professional Induction Specialist Credentials in Special Education and may be earned concurrently with those credentials. The M.A. degree can include specializations in the following areas: autism, early childhood, developing gifted potential, mild/moderate disabilities, moderate/severe disabilities, and vocational transition. All programs must be approved by the graduate adviser. Although the M.A. degree is usually linked to a teacher credential, it is open to individuals with undergraduate degrees in a wide range of disciplines in consultation with the graduate adviser.
