    Several courses needed to complete Special Education licensure requirements are offered online and during summer sessions, making it possible to complete requirements in a timely manner.
    You’ll spend more than 200 hours observing and teaching in classrooms during your practicum experiences, allowing you to learn firsthand what a career in education involves.
    MSUM education graduates boast 100 percent career related placement.
