Master's in Special Education

The M.Ed. Special Education - Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) program aligns with NSU’s focused mission of “empower[ing] individuals to become socially responsible global citizens by creating and sustaining a culture of learning and discovery.”

This program empowers teachers to sustain a culture of learning for students with ASD and all other disabilities under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).

The goal of this proposed program is to prepare teachers to effectively educate students with ASD and other disabilities.

The program includes three course components that lead to a final culminating capstone experience:

  • Professional Education
  • Special Education
  • Enrichment
