Why Choose the Exceptionalities Program?

If you are a Master of Education (M.Ed.) degree candidate who wants to gain knowledge and experience working with those with exceptionalities but don't want to obtain a professional teaching license in special education, consider Wright State's Master of Education in Exceptionalities program. You will gain insight on both high-incidence disabilities and low-incidence disabilities across multiple age ranges and how exceptionalities impact the learning process.
