The Exceptional Student M.Ed. program prepares exceptional education teachers to work in programs serving K-12 students with disabilities. It is designed for teachers already certified in exceptional student education to enhance their knowledge and skills. Students will apply, reflect upon, and refine knowledge and skills acquired in the program. The culminating experience includes a comprehensive examination.

Official catalog information including application deadlines, curriculum requirements and program restrictions can be found in the UCF Graduate Catalog.
