Special Education Administration Certificate
The Department of Education offers a Graduate Certificate in Special Education Administration. This program allows educators to administer and lead special education programs. Students who pursue this Graduate Certificate must concurrently pursue the certification for a New Hampshire Special Education Administrator. In other words, the Graduate Certificate is coterminous with the credential. When a student completes the Graduate Certificate he/she also completes the certification as a special education administrator. These two cannot be uncoupled.
The requirements for admission include:
• Master’s Degree in special education, educational administration, or similar field.
• Possess a current credential in special education
• A minimum of three years of successful teaching experience in special education (must have five years experience for credential eligibility).
