Serving Those Who Are Differently Abled
Helping Students Achieve More
If you have a passion for working with students across the learning spectrum, consider earning a Master’s degree in Special Education. This fully online program is design for busy working professionals while still focusing on deep engagement with faculty and fellow students.
Our Master of Education in Special Education program prepares certified teachers to engage with students with a variety of special needs – from students with Down Syndrome, ADHD, behavioral disorder, emotional disorders, learning disabilities and more – to achieve their greatest potential. Learn how to create effective IEPs (individualized education plans), manage student behaviors, teach effectively, and collaborate with other professionals and families. After being taught by master teachers with years of experience in special education, you’ll graduate equipped and prepared to make a difference in the lives of students with special needs.
This predominately online program meets the needs of professional teachers already working in the field. The mission of the Education Department at Lancaster Bible College | Capital Seminary & Graduate School guides our thinking and practice. We exist to prepare and disciple teachers to be relevant, relational and reflective practitioners who think biblically and impact the educational community. When you earn your M.Ed. from LBC | Capital, you will experience:
“Children are a gift from the Lord… ” – Psalm 127:3
*Credit total may be higher if student needs to take courses in Biblical & Theological studies
