This unique degree is designed for general or special education teachers in all developmental areas who wish to meet the needs of students in increasingly diverse classrooms.
Coursework and field experiences are designed to build skills in meeting the needs of students with very diverse backgrounds and skill levels. The Differentiated Instruction – Student with Disabilities Master’s program provides teachers with extended research-based knowledge in the areas of assessment, differentiated instructional strategies, behavioral strategies, collaborative teamwork, assistive technology, and other inclusive education issues.
This program was developed in response to the increasing demand for teachers who have the skills to meet the needs of students with a wide range of exceptionalities in diverse classrooms. Exceptionalities include those students with significant learning, behavioral or communication difficulties as well as those who may be identified as gifted and/or talented.
This MSED meets the criteria for, and may be used in partial fulfillment of, the requirements for professional (permanent) teacher certification in New York, and also meets the coursework requirement for the gifted education extension and students with disabilities certification.
Students with disabilities certification may be obtained in one of three developmental areas, Birth – grade 2, grades 1-6, or 7-12 generalist.
