A Master's Degree that Prepares You for Both the Special Education Generalist and Culturally Linguistically Diverse Endorsements

The Teaching Diverse Learners Master of Arts degree program is designed for current licensed teachers who would like to earn added endorsements in both Special Education Generalist and Culturally Linguistically Diverse. You will enhance your ability to recognize and develop the cognitive, linguistic and classroom skills of these two growing populations of learners.

  • Dual Endorsements: In addition to earning your master's degree, this program incorporates all of the coursework and field experiences necessary to receive both endorsements.
  • Online Delivery for Your Convenience: the online delivery lets you fit coursework around your schedule.

Double Up on Highly-Valued Teaching Skills

This program gives you important, high-demand skills for mainstream classroom teaching. Virtually every school is experiencing growth in the number of students who have special educational needs as well as those who bring cultural and language diversity to the classroom. Teachers who are able to assist these learners in ways that enhance the learning experience of every student in the classroom are highly valued.

Teachers who wish to become pull-out teachers for language learners and/or those with special educational needs will be endorsed for those roles as well.

The theories, skills and strategies included in this program—and the official endorsements towards which they prepare you—will put you in high demand. More importantly, this program will help you connect with these students in ways that empower their journey to academic success.
