Candidates must register for and complete MED 6102 E-folio as the initial course in the program. This course is a pre-requisite for all other education courses.
The purpose and curriculum of the Master of Education in Education Studies, Special Education (K-12) are similar to the Master of Education in Special Education (K-12) with the exception of those elements associated with clinical coursework (practicum, and student teaching).

Program competencies for this degree are identical to those currently in effect for the Master of Education in Special Education (K-12), with the exception of those competencies linked directly to clinical courses. Program competencies and attributes are derived from the College of Education Conceptual Framework, the InTASC standards (Interstate New Teacher Assessment and Support Consortium), and standards set by the CEC (Council for Exceptional Children).
