Fairmont State University (FSU) offers a Master's Degree in Multi-categorical Special Education for those in non-Education Majors. The purpose of this emphasis is to permit candidates who have no existing teaching license to acquire a degree and an endorsement in Multi-categorical Special Education. The emphasis is unique in that course work has been developed as multi-categorical in nature and not disability specific. This program stresses the interactive nature between the learning and behavior problems that students experience. As WV moves in the direction of providing multi-categorical classrooms and services, this program will meet that need. The largest group of students served by special education teachers would be those in the multi-categorical category.
