Special Education (M.A.)
An Online Program Preparing Teachers to Meet the Needs of All Students
Today, all teachers have to be prepared to meet the needs of students with special learning abilities. With the field of special education expanding at a rapid rate, there is also an increased demand for skilled teachers to accommodate students with exceptional needs and developmental challenges. Seton Hill’s Master of Arts in Special Education Program provides educators with the instruction and technological skills required to understand their students and adjust to their learning needs.
The School of Education at Seton Hill University offers a special Autism Endorsement Program. These graduate-level courses in autism can be taken on their own or added to Seton Hill’s master’s programs in special education and elementary/middle level education. Added to a master’s program, it will prepare you to add the Pennsylvania Department of Education’s Autism Spectrum Disorders Endorsement to your professional credentials.

"I was optimistic that my time at Seton Hill would be a positive experience, one that would bring me closer to my long-range goals. What I was wholly unprepared for was the kindness, the generosity, and the incredible authenticity of the people I would meet along the way. Seton Hill is a strong, vibrant community of mentors, learners, dreamers and do-ers - a stunning mosaic of cultures, heritages, values and beliefs."- Jamie Kegg, SHU '15, M.A. in Special Education, in her commencement speech.
