Achieve your dream of teaching special education

Our UAB Special Education Program features interdisciplinary, graduate-level courses that are both rigorous and innovative. We offer specialties such as the Collaborative Teacher (CT) K-12, Early Childhood Special Education (ECSE), and Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). We also have a Collaborative Special Education Degree with a concentration in reading, and we are home to Alabama’s first Ed.S., degree program in Collaborative Special Education with a concentration in autism spectrum disorders.

As a student, you will learn early intervention and preschool curriculum and methods, collaborative processes, technology applications, physical and healthcare support in early childhood education, lesson planning, and positive behavioral supports. And, because you are a busy professional, we have classes in the afternoons, early evenings, weekends, and during the summer for your convenience. We also offer classes online and in blended formats that combine both online and on-campus sessions.

Want to switch careers to become a teacher?

The Alternative Masters Program (AMP) is designed for individuals who hold an undergraduate degree in a field outside of education who want to become certified teachers. Once you complete the AMP, you will earn an alternative Class A certification in your specific teaching field along with a Master's degree. Learn more details in the AMP Information Packet.
