The Early Childhood Special Education (ECSE) Masters degree program may be completed in conjunction with the Early Childhood Special Education-General Curriculum certification or Special Education Preschool certification. The Masters program provides training for individuals interested in working with children from birth through age 8 with disabilities and their families. A variety of research-based instructional approaches are covered, including Activity Based Intervention, linked systems of assessment, the ecological model, and a family guided approach.
Successful completion of this graduate program leads to a Masters degree (M.Ed.) in Multiple and Severe Disabilities (MSD) with a concentration in Early Childhood Special Education. Students may attend as full or part time students.
All Masters students who successfully complete the program will receive an endorsement to be highly qualified to teach reading.
Graduate courses in the Masters program are taught by College of Education faculty, typically in the afternoon (e.g., 4:30-7:00p) or late evening (e.g., 7:30-10p) at the Georgia State University campus in downtown Atlanta. There are a few courses that are offered either partially or completely online.
