MEd in Inclusive Education


The 36 credit MEd in Inclusive Education is designed for candidates who are already certified in Early Childhood or Elementary Education and want to obtain both the Teacher of Students with Disabilities (TSD) certification and a master’s degree in Inclusive Education. 

Candidates select one of following three degree concentrations, based upon their initial certification:

  • Early Childhood (P-3)/TSD concentration
  • Early Childhood (P-3)/TSD, Autism concentration in collaboration with MSU’s Center on Autism and Early Childhood Mental Health
  • Elementary Education TSD concentration 

Upon completion of the program, graduates are well-prepared to work with students with disabilities and their families as home-based early intervention specialists, early childhood or elementary teachers, inclusion facilitators, and educational consultants. 

All candidates who pursue the MEd in Inclusive Education take the same set of core courses and culminating experience course.
