Online master’s in special education among nation’s best

By C. Brandon Chapman, College of Education

Darcy-MillerPULLMAN, Wash. – The online master’s degree in special education at Washington State University has been ranked 20th in the country by Best Colleges, based on academic strengths, learning goals, innovative courses and online classroom experience.

The degree is designed for licensed teachers who want to work in K-12 special education. Classes are taught asynchronously, though some specific assignments may require live participation.

Program director Darcy Miller said the online program has worked well for teachers who are already in the field.

“Working teachers have said it is great to have the online flexibility, and they find the content relevant to their practices in schools,” she said.

The program has been gaining respect, she said, because it is highly individualized and courses are continually being updated and refreshed.

“Global Campus is very supportive of students, and our faculty provide great assistance and mentorship to the students throughout the program,” she said.
