M.S. in Inclusive Special Education (Grades 1-6)

Syracuse University's M.S. in Inclusive Special Education (grades 1-6) prepares students to work with individuals with disabilities by examining disability as a social, cultural, and political construct, inextricably linked to issues of race, class and gender.

A grounding assumption of this program is that students with disabilities must have access to all academic instruction and social learning that is available to students without disabilities. Fieldwork helps students connect theory and practice, as students actively participate in planning, assessment, and teaching teams in local schools.

Why Inclusive Special Education at Syracuse? If you:

  • Believe that all students deserve access to high quality classroom and social opportunities and recognition as learners.
