Ed.M. in Special Education


Coordinator: Dr. Stanley Vitello, (732-932-7496, ext. 8326; email: vitello@rci.rutgers.edu)

The master's degree program in special education provides advanced graduate preparation for both certified special and general education teachers. The option to obtain New Jersey certification as a learning disabilities teacher consultant (LDTC) is provided. Students should meet with their advisers for current certification requirements. Course work and internship experiences address the instructional needs of students with mild and moderate cognitive disabilities. The 36-credit program is composed of a special education core (18 credits); a learning, cognition, and development (LCD) requirement (6 credits); educational statistics, measurement, and evaluation courses (6 credits); and electives (6 credits).

The 18-credit special education core is required of all students. This core develops competencies in the assessment and remediation of students with learning disabilities, collaborative teaching/ consultation skills, and knowledge about New Jersey special education law.

The program does notinclude course work leading to New Jersey teacher certification in special education.
