Special Education

Master-level studies involve specialized study in a field of research or an area of professional practice. Earning a master’s degree demonstrates a higher level of mastery of the subject. Earning a master’s degree can take anywhere from a year to three or four years. Before you can graduate, you usually must write and defend a thesis, a long paper that is the culmination of your specialized research.

Special education is a facet of teaching that focuses on delivering an appropriate education to children who struggle with mental, physical, emotional, or social delays. Special education teachers often must complete professional training and receive certification in both teaching and special education to work with students who have special needs.

Europe, one of the world's seven continents, is usually known as the westernmost peninsula of Eurasia. Second smallest continent, with 10,180,000 (km2), the area regroups 50 countries.
