The Master of Arts in Inclusive Education is built upon initial and extended certification tracks. The initial certification track is dedicated to candidates without a previous teaching license who want to teach children with a wide variety of educational needs. This track leads to certification in both regular education and cross-categorical special education at middle childhood-early adolescence level. The extended certification track is designed for licensed, regular education teachers who would like to become certified in special education. This track leads to certification in cross-categorical special education at the middle childhood-early adolescence level. In this track, students can also continue to earn the M.A. in Inclusive Education. All credits taken for certification count toward the master’s degree. The student teaching requirements for both tracks can be accomplished in one semester, resulting in earlier program completion. This is the only post-baccalaureate program of its kind offered in the state of Wisconsin.
