The K-12 Intervention Specialist licensure-only program is for licensed teachers (current or expired) who are seeking to add licensure in special education. Candidates may choose to take the coursework while obtaining their Master of Arts Education degree by taking additional education core coursework and a final research capstone.

The program is designed to be part time with classes offered at convenient times and some online coursework. For students who have the necessary prerequisites and begin in the summer, the program can be completed by the end of the following summer. If your original licensure area is in AYA or Multi-Age, you may need 3-4 additional reading courses.

The Intervention Specialist license can be earned in two areas; mild/moderate or moderate/intensive. Students can choose one or both licensure areas.
