1 George Washington University Washington, DC ONLINE SECONDARY EDUCATION DEGREE INFORMATION Total online programs1 Get Info

Students in George Washington University’s online Master of Arts in Secondary Special Education & Transition Services program learn to lead transition services and programs for youths with disabilities in a variety of settings, including post-secondary education, employment, and life as an independent adult. Coursework for this degree can be completed fully online, meaning that students need not ever appear on the GWU campus. However, the program does require completion of a supervised teaching internship. The program meets both the U.S. Department of Labor’s National Collaborative on Workforce & Disability for Youth (NCWD-Youth) transition guideposts and the CEC Advanced Knowledge and Skills Base for Transition Specialists. Completion of the program does not directly result in teacher licensure or certification, however. Students seeking licensure in the District of Columbia must complete the relevant teacher assessment (PRAXIS). Students intending to teach outside or the District of Columbia should contact the licensing agency in their jurisdiction to determine if this degree qualifies them for licensure eligibility.
