MA Inclusive Education

 The Master of Arts (M.A.) in Inclusive Education program leads to certification in regular education and cross categorical special education. 


There are two tracks in the program:

Initial Certification Track

A graduate-level program for candidates without a previous teaching license who want to become prepared to teach children with a wide variety of educational needs. This track leads to certification in both Regular Education and Cross Categorical Special Education at the Middle Childhood-Early Adolescence Level.

A unique feature of this program is that the student teaching requirements for both certification areas can be accomplished in one semester, resulting in earlier program completion and program cost savings. This is the only post-baccalaureate program of its kind offered in the state of Wisconsin. 

Students can also continue on to earn the M.A. in Inclusive Education degree. All credits taken for certification count towards the master's degree.

Extended Certification Track

A graduate-level program for licensed regular education teachers who would like to become certified in special education. This track leads to certification in Cross Categorical Special Education at the Middle Childhood-Early Adolescence level.

Students can also continue on to earn the M.A. in Inclusive Education degree. All credits taken for certification count towards the master's degree.
