Program Format

Master of Arts (M.A.) in Urban Special Education


Coursework is offered in a supportive cohort model and follows the university semester. All of our courses are conveniently offered in the evening beginning at 5pm. Students attend class twice a week, with an occasional third night once a month for a couple of semesters. 

For most of our students, field experiences and student teaching are completed on the job. If a student is not a teacher of record in a Milwaukee area school, we will place the student in an unpaid placement to complete the program requirements. 

Students earn their certification in two years with the option of earning a Master’s degree as well during that time.
