Would I be able to teach with a master’s degree in Special Education?

September 16, 2016

At MSU, the Master of Arts (MA) degree in Special Education does not lead to initial teacher certification.  However, certified teachers can earn an additional endorsement in Learning Disabilities or Autism Spectrum Disorders through the master’s degree program.  Individuals who have earned a bachelor’s degree and wish to pursue initial certification as an elementary and special education teacher should consider our Post-Bachelor’s route to initial teacher certification.  See Post Bachelor Certification Program and Admission for Post-Bachelor’s Teacher Certification Candidates for more information.
