Online Masters Degrees in Special Education


The educational requirements of special education specialists are increasing (a bachelor's degree is the minimum), and a shortage of these professionals in many states has led to "excellent job prospects" according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Online courses in an online master's degree program will develop students' background in several key areas:
  • Learning Disabilities
  • Emotional Disturbance
  • Mental Retardation
  • Social Services
  • Curriculum and Instruction
An online master's degree is a great way to solidify your credentials and qualify for a number of special education job opportunities. Most jobs are found at public or private elementary and secondary schools.
