The Master of Education (MEd) in Special Education program prepares teachers to develop and implement culturally responsive special education services for students with disabilities. The program focuses on the unique needs of (a) children and youth with disabilities; (b) Alaska's diverse Native and non-Native communities; and (c) Alaska's remote and rural communities.
The MEd in Special Education program is designed to accommodate practicing teachers, paraeducators and other school-based professionals. Courses are offered in the afternoons, evenings, and in the summer. All courses are delivered via audioconference and augmented with online resources. This e-Learning format allows candidates who live and work in Alaska's remote and rural communities to remain in their communities while completing their graduate studies.
