Master’s in High Incidence Disabilities Practicum Experience

This practicum information only applies to you if you are a student in the graduate Master of Science in Education (M.S.E.) in Special Education and an emphasis on High Incidence Disabilities, taking either the Teacher Track or the Endorsement Track. If you are in one of those programs, we recommend that you bookmark this page in your browser now, so you will always have ready access to this information.

You may be asking, what is practicum and how does it work at the University of Kansas School of Education? For classroom educators pursuing endorsement or a license to teach as a special educator, KU’s online programs include two required practicum experiences incorporating intensive fieldwork and direct teaching experiences. In addition to meeting requirements for supervised field experience, the practicum allows you to apply what you are learning in your online graduate program in a classroom environment, while receiving real-time feedback that makes you a more effective educator.
