The Master of Education (M.Ed.) in Special Education, with the focus on Autism, is designed to meet the needs of professionals who serve children with autism in a school setting or in a cognate area of administration. The program consists of 36 semester hours that includes core and major requirements. Individuals may apply to the Florida Department of Education for the autism endorsement after completing the courses in the Autism Concentration area of the program of study.
The Master of Education in Special Education: Autism Track includes a practicum at the conclusion of the program of study, so it is important to determine State Authorization of Distance Education and if you will be able to do a practicum in your home state or if you have to do your practicum elsewhere. Please see the UNF State Authorization Status website for more information and updates. State Authorization of Distance Education is a complex and dynamic environment. Prospective students should check this site often for updates: http://www.unf.edu/distancelearning/about/StateAuthorization.aspx.
