The Master's in Education, with an option in Special Education, prepares graduates for K-12 teaching positions to serve students with special needs. This program will benefit teachers seeking competence in instructional and positive behavioral strategies for students with learning/behavioral needs. Upon completion of this program, students will be eligible to apply to the Wyoming Professional Teaching Standards Board for an endorsement in K-12 Special Education.
The master's degree program is 33 credit hours for a Plan B project or 41 credit hours for a Plan A thesis. All the classes are taught using distance delivery such as video-conferencing, online, intensive weekends, or combinations of delivery methods. This program is designed for licensed teachers to add a Master’s degree to their qualifications. In addition to the degree, successful students can apply for a teaching endorsement in K-12 Special Education from the Wyoming Professional Teaching Standards Board.
