In addition to foundational knowledge you can apply in any setting, you’ll take specialized courses in your preferred concentration: Mild Intervention or Intense Intervention.
- If you seek a teaching license, this program prepares you for initial Indiana licensure in Mild Intervention or Intense Intervention for Early Childhood (P–3), Elementary (K–6), Secondary (5–12), or P–12.
- If you’re already licensed, this program can enhance your existing skill set and prepare you for career advancement.
- If you don’t seek a teaching license, this program can help you excel as a special-needs teacher and trainer in non-school settings.
Plus, a Special Education M.S.Ed. from the University of Saint Francis puts a premium on quality and affordability. For less than $20,000, you can complete a special education program with full National Recognition by the Council for Exceptional Children (CEC).
Professional Licensure Disclosures

- If you desire a license from a state other than Indiana, please contact the State Department of Education for that state for clarification on obtaining licensure.
- Relocating to another state during the course of a program could impact whether or not you meet that state’s requirements. Please contact the appropriate licensing agency for professional licensure eligibility requirements.
- USF students enrolled in teacher education programs are being prepared to test for the Indiana teaching licensure exam. However, students are not required to sit for the Indiana licensure exam to earn the degree.
