Supervisor of Special Education Certificate

Return to Academic Programs Return to: Academic Programs

Through four courses and an internship (15 credits), this program provides candidates with the opportunity to develop and knowledge of and competence in the fundamental concepts of supervising special education programs.


This certification option in special education is built on the assumption that most supervisory operations in education are, in principle, generic, with their fundamentals of theory and practice in common. The major distinguishing characteristic of this option is the application of supervisory theory to the context of the special education of exceptional children and youth. Specific emphasis is placed upon activities, relationships, facilities, agencies, persons, and processes that have particular relevance to special education. The student completes a plan of studies encompassing such courses as supervision, finance, curriculum development, current and legal issues in the specialization, and a supervision internship.
