The Master of Arts degree with certification in Learning and Behavior Disorders is a certification program for candidates with a teaching certificate who wish to teach students with mild to moderate learning and behavior disabilities (LBD).
What You Learn
Kentucky needs P-12 teachers who are committed to providing high-quality learning experiences and services to students with mild to moderate learning and behavior disorders (LBD). Georgetown College’s Learning/Behavior Disorders Master of Arts in Education helps to fill the ongoing need for teachers in this area.
How You Learn
This is a fully online cohort. Most courses will be offered in a 7 and a half week format, though some 15 week courses may be included. (In which you will take two courses at a time). You will log into the online classroom using our online learning management system to participate in online activities which may include assignments, webinars or chats, materials, discussion threads, assessments and/or group activities done electronically. Following this schedule, you will complete the program as little as 2 years, depending on prior coursework taken.
Upon completion of this program students will have earned a Master of Arts in Education degree and P-12 Certification in Learning/Behavior Disorders. A passing score on the Praxis exam will be required to earn your LBD Certification.
