ABOUT ACCELERATED PROGRAMS

Students that have 90 credits completed and a 2.75 GPA can earn their undergraduate degree and master’s degree in 5 years. As an undergraduate student, students can enroll in 500 level courses instead of 400 level courses. These higher-level courses will count toward both their undergraduate and master’s degrees per approval by the graduate studies office. Then, during their fifth academic year, students will continue and complete their master’s degree program as normal.  

ABOUT THIS PROGRAM

The Special Education master’s degree enhances students’ preparation for supporting people with diverse learning abilities and behavioral needs. This program is designed for current special education teachers who wish to specialize in visual impairments or current K-12 general classroom teachers who want to pivot to special education and diversify their skills. For those choosing to specialize in visual impairments, Northern State University works closely with the South Dakota School for the Blind and Visually Impaired, which is located in a brand-new building right next to campus in Aberdeen.
