California Preliminary Credential - Special Education and MA in Education
Through its mentor-guided clinical component, the MA in Education with a California Teaching Credential in Special Education prepares highly skilled special education instructors who are ready to hit the ground running.
We believe the best way to prepare great teachers is through real-world experience. In addition to teaching in theory and methods, our program’s internship component provides a paid, mentor-guided teaching experience in a K–12 setting, where every assignment and class is designed to develop the unique skills and strategies you’ll need to succeed in the special education environment. Our program lets you earn your MA in Education while simultaneously getting your Preliminary Special Education credential. You’ll be mentored by seasoned special education veterans, many of whom have taken time out of the special education arena to pursue doctoral work or to participate in research projects.
