Program Description

The Master's Program in Special Education aims to provide knowledge and skills, both theoretical and practical, which are essential for the education and support of students with special educational needs in mainstream and special schools. It aims at providing knowledge, raising awareness, and training graduates of Pedagogy and other University Departments on issues of Special Inclusive Education.

This program in Special Education will provide scientific information regarding the identification, evaluation and treatment of special needs within the general school (general class, special unit or individualized special education) and also in other areas of special education provision. This Special Proceedings program will also provide an opportunity to conduct research projects in an area in which not much research has been conducted to date, at least in the Cypriot area.
