With a master’s degree in Special Education, you will be ready to pursue a rewarding career helping exceptional learners reach their full potential.

Centenary University’s Master of Arts (M.A.) in Special Education program will provide you with comprehensive training on how to create a learning environment in which all students can excel. We offer two program options, depending on your current qualifications:

  • A 39-credit program for students working toward a master’s degree and a Teacher of Students with Disabilities Endorsement.

Our Special Education program is offered as part of Centenary’s commitment to producing “broadly educated” graduates who want to make a difference in their community and in their profession. The curriculum includes courses on the assessment of children with special needs as well as the social and communication challenges they face.
