TEAM-MSE is an accelerated blended/online program for individuals who want to teach children with special needs in grades K-12 who come from culturally and/or linguistically diverse backgrounds.

This program is designed for non-traditional second career individuals who do not have a teaching license and are seeking an alternate route to Ohio special education licensure.  The curriculum for this program includes both special education and multicultural curriculum.  Graduates of this program will have the skills and knowledge to work with children in grades K-12 who come from culturally and/or linguistically diverse backgrounds and are in need of special education services.

All coursework leading to the Ohio Alternative Residence Educator’s License (AREL) is embedded within the master’s degree.  The course delivery format available for this track is blended learning, which allows students the convenience of online learning during the weekdays with Saturday class meetings.  The cohort that begins in January meets at the Butler County Educational Service Center.  Cohorts that begin in May meet at the Mount’s main campus in Delhi Township, Cincinnati, Ohio.
