Program Curriculum Tracks

We offer four curriculum tracks. Three tracks lead to a master's degree in special education. Three tracks include the necessary coursework to apply for an Ohio K-12 Mild-Moderate Intervention Specialist teaching license. To find the appropriate track for you, please visit our Program Tracks page.

Course Format

Coursework is primarily web-based and asynchronous utilizing a web-based course management system and audio/video conferencing. Courses also include three live course meetings most semesters. Synchronous sessions are always on Saturdays, generally occur once a month, and typically take place between the hours of 9AM-2PM. They provide students the space and time to meet and discuss their courses and projects, as well as receive support and interact with advisors, faculty, and their peers. The web-based course work varies in each course and may include asynchronous project-based activities and discussions as well as sessions that may occur via web-based video conferencing or webinars.
