MS in Special Education

This program has been identified as one that could potentially meet educational requirements for a licensed profession.

The information provided below is a general indication of whether or not our program meets the educational requirements for licensure. For programs with multiple licensing options or pathways, students will need to work closely with their advisor and/or program director to determine if our program meets the requirements of your desired license or pathway.

The information is accurate as of the time it was last reviewed. However, licensure requirements can change frequently. Therefore, it is good to regularly speak with your advisor and/or program director about your plans for licensure and to check with state licensing bodies about specific requirements.

Due to complex licensure requirements, Minot State will determine on an individual basis if our program meets state licensure requirements. If you are interested in determining if the MS in Special Education can meet your state's requirements for licensure, please contact Minot State Online prior to making application. To find your state's licensing agencies and review their requirements, please refer to the list of licensing agencies by state on the Education Licensing Bodies web page.
