The graduate-level special education program in severe or multiple disabilities at Fisher prepares teachers for distinguished careers in special education and is designed for those who are seeking a deeper understanding of special education laws and best practices, with a focus on students with severe and multiple disabilities. This program provides a foundation for a career as a special education administrator.
The 30 credit-hour (10 classes) master's program features integrated coursework and practicum and is completed in three semesters. Materials within classes are tailored to fit the specific grade levels (childhood or adolescence) you will teach.
The program is offered in a hybrid format with a combination of online and in-seat courses in a supportive learning environment.
The program can be used for NYS professional certification requirements. Additionally, the Severe and Multiple Disabilities Annotation will attach to grade level initial certification.
