About

The Special Educational Needs programme of Trinity College Dublin is aimed at educators working with children and young people in early years settings, primary and post-primary education who wish to respond to the increasing developmental and cultural diversity our schools.

Overview

The multi-disciplinary Special Educational Needs programme of Trinity College Dublin is designed for students who wish to advance their skills and improve their practice in inclusive education environments. Based in the unique campus of Trinity College Dublin, the programme attracts students from Ireland and across the world who wish to make a real difference in the lives of children and young people.

Students in this programme explore key international and national policy developments in inclusive education while developing conceptual understandings of how schools and society view diversity. The taught modules provide students with effective teaching and learning strategies including Universal Design for Learning, an approach which ensures the inclusion of all children and young people while in school. Through their research, students on this programme also gain access to the latest research expertise and guidance.

Graduates of the Masters in Special Education have used the skills developed during the programme to expand their career opportunities. Some have gone on to become more specialised teachers in their schools, others have advanced to educational leadership or management positions, some now work in education policy and others have continued their studies to doctorate level.
