Courses You Will Take

The 15-credit-hour autism graduate certificate provides specialized training for those treating students with autism spectrum disorders, which is the fastest growing disability group. The autism certificate can be integrated into a master’s program in special education. It’s a good complement for you if you have a teaching license in elementary, secondary, or special education.

Please note that the autism graduate certificate does not lead to a teaching license. Graduate certificates will not accept transfer credits.
