If you are a licensed teacher, receive a cross-endorsement in Special Education

The M.A. in Special Education – Advanced Teaching is a 38-credit program for licensed teachers in Connecticut that aligns with the State Department of Education’s requirements for a cross-endorsement as a Special Education teacher (K-12).
