What We Offer

Summary

The special education graduate concentration at Springfield College leads to initial licensure in Teacher of Students with Moderate Disabilities (TSMD). With courses available in the late afternoon or early evenings, this flexible program is ideal for teachers who wish to complete their degree in one to two years and teach students with mild to moderate disabilities in grades PreK-8 or 5-12.

Through coursework and fieldwork, educators will learn the best methods for meeting the needs of children with learning disabilities, attention disorders, language and communication disorders, intellectual delays, and behavioral disorders. The program features a year-long residency program in a classroom, as well as coursework designed to help educators address the complex social and emotional environments of their learners. Teachers in this program will be prepared to work collaboratively with other school professionals, communicate and work effectively with parents, and work to advocate for the rights of all children to have a meaningful education.
