Specializations

Cited by the Pennsylvania Department of Education for its "innovative programmatic and curricular design," the graduate education program breaks away from traditional programming. It reflects and respects the learning styles and schedules of adult learners.

The graduate education program offers participants a common body of necessary skills and knowledge through a common 12-credit core requirement. It then allows students to pursue an area of interest by specializing in one of two focus areas —instructional technology, (18 credits), and special education (see Tracks 1 through 4 for credit totals). Each program includes courses appropriate to the specialization and the opportunity to participate in additional elective courses, as well as independent and directed studies. The program's unique culminating experiences asks students to share what they have learned in their programs with colleagues by developing and implementing an in-service workshop.
