Liberty University offers students a Graduate Certificate in Autism Education that can be completed entirely online. The graduate certificate program is intended to supplement the student’s current bachelor’s or master’s education. The program’s course of study offers a light course load that may increase the student’s marketability for future careers within the education field.
The program’s curriculum is designed to further the student’s teaching and classroom management skills for special education settings within public, private and Christian schools. Students will begin to utilize the tools that are necessary to assist the emotional and intellectual needs of autistic students. Students should also strengthen their understanding of modern intervention methods and the specific traits students have with autism.
