The purpose of the M.S.E. degree in Special Education is to offer educators an advanced performance-based program of study based on the recommendations of professional organizations and accrediting associations such as the Council for Exceptional Child (CEC) and NCATE.

This program prepares personnel to work in a variety of professional roles with young children with disabilities, birth through kindergarten, and their families. Upon completion of this M.S.E. degree program, students are eligible for endorsement in special education in Arkansas. Students seeking endorsement in special education without pursuing the M.S.E. degree should see an adviser for an analysis of completed courses and a suggested program of study.
