M.S. in Special Education

As the number of students requiring special education services continues to rise, schools must increase their capacity to accommodate this diverse population with unique needs. Drexel’s M.S. in Special Education offers four areas of concentration that provide graduates with the in–depth knowledge and skills to teach in specific areas.

Special Education Certifications

The M.S. in Special Education prepares students for the required special education certification needed in the state of Pennsylvania*. Upon completion of the necessary requirements, Drexel University will formally recommend the student to the state for certification in the area for which they have prepared.

Students work closely with their academic advisor to map out objectives and desired career outcomes. Together, you will formulate an individualized plan of study that meets specific needs in preparation for the certification process.

* Through operation of interstate reciprocity agreements, a Pennsylvania teaching certificate may be converted to the analogous teaching certificate in another state.
