The Master of Education (M.Ed.) in Early and Special Education degree program at Boise State University is designed to offer enhanced professional development in the related fields of early childhood intervention and special education for experienced special educators and other professionals who provide supports and services to individuals with disabilities. These individuals may be employed as early childhood interventionists, K-12 special education teachers, or may work with or on behalf of young children with disabilities and their families in community or agency settings. This program allows flexibility for students to structure a program around their professional interests and also allows students to complete a graduate certificate program concurrently. The M.Ed. in Early and Special Education does not lead to initial teacher certification nor does it require certification for admission.
