Transition Specialist Program

The Department of Special Education and Rehabilitation at Utah State University offers a two-year, 40-credit program that leads to a M.S. or M.Ed in Special Education with a concentration in transition.  This program prepares special education teachers licensed at the bachelor’s level and other eligible graduate students to be interdisciplinary transition service providers equipped with skills and knowledge necessary to work collaboratively with youth who have disabilities, their families, and other agencies towards successful post-school outcomes.  This program is based on a true interdisciplinary partnership.  Disciplines represented in coursework, practica, and other experiences include general and special education, rehabilitation counseling, applied behavior analysis, vocational education, and adult education.

What makes the USU Transition Specialist Program unique?Students take "core" masters courses along with transition-related courses. Three courses allow students pursuing special education degrees to work alongside students working towards rehabilitation counseling degrees, thus allowing an interdisciplinary experience.
