Master's Degree Programs in Special Education
Dear Prospective Student:
Thank you for your interest in the Master of Education/Special Education Program at Concordia College! We are currently enrolling students for the upcoming academic year. Our Master’s students are diverse -- representing new college graduates to career changers in fields as varied as business, social work, psychology, and law. Our enrollment is growing and we are looking forward to the next school year.
Special Education is an exciting profession where you are able to make a difference in the lives of children and their families. Qualified special educators are in demand and highly-valued. The Concordia Master’s program is innovative and prepares educators who can teach across a variety of schools and classroom settings. Ask us about our merit-based scholarships, and the opportunity to take classes in the evenings, on weekends, and in the summer.
All students in the program receive textbooks through our textbook loan program and an iPad to keep after graduation.
We're happy to announce a new 5-year B.A. to M.S. Ed fast track in Childhood Education and Childhood Special Education. The program prepares students to meet all New York State teacher certification requirements in these areas. Students leave the program prepared to teach literacy and other core subjects to diverse groups of children in grades 1-6.
Our faculty members are highly knowledgeable with expertise in specializations including: Learning Disabilities, Autism, ABA, Assistive Technology, Classroom Management, Research and Leadership (our assistive technology class will be taught by faculty of the Westchester Institute for Human Development in the Assistive Technology Center). In the next year we will be adding new programs and courses to meet the wide-ranging needs and interests of our graduate students. We are also establishing partnerships with local schools where students may conduct observations, lessons and student teaching.
