Lourdes University now Offers a M.Ed. in Special Education

Program meets demand for Special Education Teachers in our region


Lourdes University President Mary Ann Gawelek, Ed.D., and College of Social Sciences Dean Terry Keller, Ph.D., have announced a new graduate program - a Master of Education degree in Special Education. The program is led by Director Carolyn Jaksetic, M.Ed. The first cohort is scheduled to begin Fall 2018.


The M.Ed. in Special Education can be completed in two years for those seeking the degree with a Mild to Moderate Intervention Specialist Licensure. For those seeking their first teaching license, the program can be completed in two and a half years and allows individuals to obtain an Ohio K-12 Mild to Moderate Intervention Specialist teaching credential.

Intervention Specialists/Special Education Teachers

Intervention Specialists also known as Special Education Teachers work with a wide-range of student exceptionalities in all subject matters such as learning, mental, emotional and physical. The Lourdes program prepares educators to meet the mild and moderate educational needs of their students and families.


“The Lourdes University master’s program is distinctive because it is a holistic collaboration between the Education and Behavioral Science divisions. The curriculum is family-centered and promotes shared decision making for students who require special education. Today, there is an increased need for qualified intervention specialists caused by changes in the expansion of services that schools across the U.S. are required to provide to students with special needs and their families,” says Dr. Keller. “Lourdes designed the M.Ed. in Special Education program based on those needs and requirements.”


Lourdes University began offering a Master of Education degree in 2002. In addition to the new M.Ed. in Special Education program, students can choose to pursue a M.Ed. in Curriculum & Teaching with a concentration in P-12 Reading, P-12 Reading or Educational Leadership.
