Miami University Sample Plan of Study

MASTER OF EDUCATION IN SPECIAL EDUCATION

This sample plan of study is required for students who do not currently hold a teaching license in another discipline (e.g. mathematics, social studies, etc.) and who wish to pursue an initial teaching license in Special Education.

Program Sequence

The course sequence is tentatively schedule to begin the Special Education program beginning in Fall, 2017. Courses are offered once during the program duration, thus adherence to the plan of study is essential as Bermuda-based courses may not be available at a later time.

Orientation Program

All new students will complete an online orientation program during the first two courses of the program. This orientation will provide students opportunities to learn about the program and develop the skills needed to succeed in an academic program comprised largely of online coursework.

Candidates may request an evaluation of prior coursework to determine if a waiver of one or both of these courses can be granted. These courses will be offered at Bermuda College, thus the tuition rate for these 2 courses will be the prevailing tuition rate at Bermuda College at the time of enrolment.
