Purdue’s online M.S.Ed. in Special Education program combines a unique view of the entire education landscape with practical experience for teaching students with disabilities. In as little as 20 months, this program will give you the skills to plan and administer special education curriculum, facilitate a safe and effective classroom environment, and meet the needs of exceptional children who require highly-skilled educators.

The program focuses on mild intervention, with the option to add a focus in intense intervention. Different tracks are available to meet your career needs:
