Concentration: Assistive Technology
Partially Online Concentration
Online courses are accessed via webcam in interactive, synchronous sessions (from 4:30 to 7 p.m. ET on specific weekdays).
The assistive technology concentration is one of two specialized programs University of Louisville offers in the Masters of Education in Special Education program for all professionals. Note that these concentrations do not lead to teacher certification, and therefore do not qualify graduates to teach special education in the school system.
Graduates interested in gaining licensure to become a special education teacher should refer to the MSD program.
This concentration involves the use of technological tools and devices to remove barriers for those with disabilities and addresses the importance of universal design and accessibility. This concentration in assistive technology gives graduate students the knowledge and skills necessary to use various assistive technology to address the needs of persons with low incidence and/or severe disabilities.
The goal of the program is to offer a master's degree that will advanced one's knowledge and further their expertise in the specialized area of assistive technology.
