Students are exposed to a wide variety of topics within the field of Special Education and are prepared to engage in activities related to informal assessment, functional behavior assessment, behavior intervention, special education law, programming and transition. Educators and professionals working with individuals with disabilities in schools, community service agencies and residential settings can now earn their Master’s in Special Education with a concentration in Autism Spectrum Disorders at UHV.

The Master’s of Education in Special Education classes are delivered completely online.
