The Master’s of Education (M.Ed.) program in Special Education: General Curriculum is an online program designed to provide opportunities for initially licensed teachers to gain advanced skills in teaching students with disabilities. Students with a license in education, but not special education, must successfully complete two prerequisite courses (6 credits) before beginning the M.Ed. program. The M.Ed. program is 100% online, but does include synchronous and asynchronous courses. Upon successful completion of the M.Ed. program, candidates can apply for an advanced licensure in K-12 Special Education: General Curriculum.
The UNC Greensboro School of Education was named one of the 2022 “Top Graduate Schools of Education” by the U.S. News & World Report.
The U.S. Department of Education requires that all higher education institutions advise students as to whether their curriculum provides them with the eligibility to apply for a professional license and/or certification in the state for which they plan to practice. As such, please review UNC Greensboro’s status by state for the advanced teaching license in Special Education: General Curriculum. You should note whether the program either “meets”, “does not meet”, or if there “has not been a determination” of the program’s status in the state for which you plan to practice. You should contact the program’s support staff at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions regarding this data. Licensure Reciprocity Information
