About

This Curriculum and Instruction: Autism Studies Option degree program at University of Massachusetts Lowell is designed for professional educators who already hold a teaching license in their state. This program allows educators the opportunity to combine UMass Lowell's graduate-level courses in Autism with graduate-level courses in Education.

Overview

The Online Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction: Autism Studies Option at University of Massachusetts Lowell is a 10 course (30 credit) master's degree program which can be completed entirely online.

Learning outcomes

Candidates seeking this option must first complete the Graduate Certificate in Behavioral Intervention in Autism at UMass Lowell. Upon completion of the certificate, candidates must apply and be admitted to the M.Ed. degree to have their certificate courses(15 credits maximum) included as part of the thirty required credits. 

The balance of the required courses focus on curriculum development and instructional practices in a K-12 school setting. The Education courses do not focus on Autism, but examine general issues in Curriculum and Instruction; as such, this master's degree is most appropriate for candidates who work in school settings and/or have relevant experience in Curriculum and Instruction. Several of the Education courses require assignments which assume that the candidate is in a classroom setting.
