Special Education Master's Program

Virtual Open House on Feb. 6

Event attendees will meet with faculty, get help with application questions, and receive a $55 application fee waiver.


The Special Education Master’s and Mild/Moderate Education Specialist Credential Program is designed to prepare interns for special education careers in diverse, multicultural, urban schools.

The program offers two pathways. One for candidates who already hold a teaching credential and one for those who are new to the profession. Both of the program pathways include working as paid intern teachers in Bay Area schools. This program can also include the Bilingual Authorization.

Teresa Levya, Student Intern in St. Hope Public Schools"I love the support I've received from the Special Education program. With mentorship, I've seen my potential and focus go far beyond what I expected. In such a short period of time, I saw how much of an impact I could make on my students based on how much of an impact they made on me."
