Miami University offers graduate program options in special education for practicing educators and persons wanting to transition into the field of education. Our program is well-suited for students wanting to develop expertise in designing and implementing special education services for K-12 students with mild to moderate disabilities.

Known as Special Education Online Hybrid (SEOH), this program was developed for working professionals. The hybrid nature of our program includes coursework that is primarily web-based and asynchronous, yet each course includes regular live, synchronous weekend sessions at Miami University’s Voice of America Learning Center in West Chester, Ohio.

Program Options

There are four curriculum tracks within the SEOH program. Licensure tracks include the coursework necessary to apply for an Ohio K-12 Mild-Moderate Intervention Specialist teaching license. Each track may be pursued part-time or as full-time graduate students.
