Certification Plus M.Ed. or MSE

The “certification plus Master of Education or Master of Special Education” is an option for Teacher Intern Program certification students. Teacher Intern Program students have the option to take three of their required undergraduate education courses as master’s level courses. After completion of their Teacher Intern Program, students would then only need to take the remaining seven Master of Education or Master of Master of Special Education courses to earn the M.Ed. or MSE degree.
