Goals and Course Topics

Through Averett University’s online Graduate Certificate in Special Education in PreK-6, 6-8 or 6-12, you will be equipped with the skills needed to identify, assess and support students receiving student education services.

As a graduate of this program, you will be prepared to address the needs of students with exceptionalities, and apply evidence-based strategies to help your students meet their educational goals. 

Please note: Practicum coursework will include a presentation that will reflect your experiences throughout the program, and must be completed while working 

with students receiving special education services and accessing the General Education curriculum. 



The certificate is designed to be completed in three semesters. You will take classes one at a time in eight-week blocks to allow for intense study of each concept. All courses are taught by licensed Virginia educators working in the field as building administrators, instructional specialists and teachers. 

Practicum and internship experiences designed to be completed in your own school division are embedded throughout the program. 

Who This Certificate Program Is For

The program is for educators who already hold a collegiate professional license and wish to work with special education students. This is an online degree program so you must have access to an Internet-connected computer. Students with a GPA below 3.0 will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
