Curriculum: Teacher of Students with Disabilities Endorsement

The Teacher of Students with Disabilities Endorsement is 21 credits, seven courses, and is available for candidates who already possess a Standard New Jersey Instructional Certificate in Elementary or Secondary education.

For those interested in serving students with special needs, but who do not have a current New Jersey Standard Instructional Certificate, Seton Hall offers an MA in Special Education that combines the initial certificate and the special education endorsement.
