Why Purdue Fort Wayne Special Education

Our program provides students with the skills and knowledge necessary to sit for the Indiana License in Mild Intervention. We provide options for at both the undergraduate and graduate level. Through a combination of research, theory and practical application of concepts, our students gain a unique perspective that prepares them to advance their students' success.

This graduate program is a hybrid program, which entails on-campus and online classes.

International applicants: The course work in the Masters of Education with a Major in Special Education program will not satisfy the United States Department of Homeland Security and Purdue University Graduate School requirement that you take 6 credit hours of face to face classes per semester. As such, Purdue Fort Wayne is unable to issue a Form I-20, Certificate of Eligibility, for this program.


The School of Education has earned national accreditation by demonstrating excellence in the areas of content and pedagogy, clinical experiences, selectivity, program impact, and capacity for continuous improvement.
