This certificate focuses on special education from a broader perspective than a single classroom, including your potential as a leader-practitioner and administrator. Throughout the program, you will explore these broader roles related to implementing special education programs, data, monitoring student progress across programs, and the intersection of leadership, law, and finance. You will demonstrate your knowledge and skills in a capstone course at the end of your special education coursework.
