Our online special education programs help guide educators who support students with disabilities as they work to achieve their full potential. They are leaders and advocates—educators, other professionals and family members—who must understand the unique abilities and support needs of persons with disabilities. Currently, 13 percent of all public school students are eligible for special education services,1 and demand for special education teachers continues to outpace the availability of trained special educators.2
Online graduate study through the University of Kansas School of Education can prepare you to enter or advance your career in this in-demand field. Our special education graduate programs have been ranked by U.S. News and World Report as #1 among such programs in the nation (among public universities),3 and in this department you'll learn from faculty members who are internationally acclaimed as academics and as educators who adeptly balance research, policy and practice.
Through applied experiences and case-based learning, you'll build a toolkit of special education resources and techniques with true real-world application that will help you make a difference in the lives of students with disabilities, their families and others. KU offers a range of online master's degree, graduate certificate and licensure endorsement programs in special education for students interested in teaching, research and professional service related to children, adolescents and adults with disabilities.
