M.Ed. in Differentiated Instruction

The Master of Education in Differentiated Instruction provides educators with a sequence of courses that imparts knowledge and practical guidelines on how to adjust instruction in specific cases for students who need modifications in the classroom. The majority of courses concentrate on special education since most differentiated instruction focuses on students who have been diagnosed with learning issues and who qualify for modifications. The practices learned as part of this program can also apply to students who are unmotivated due to other issues, such as their home environment or socioeconomic concerns.
